Four days in Ottawa

I was honored to be invited to be included in Contemporary Conversations, a series produced by the U.S. Embassy in Canada and the Department of State’s Art in Embassies program. I delivered a lecture, participated in a discussion with Greg Hill at the National Gallery of Canada and a roundtable at Carelton University, and held a sewing circle hosted by the NGC. It was a great turnout: more than 200 people came and sewed and shared stories.

We worked on panels that will be incorporated into First Teachers Balance the Universe, Part I: Things That Fly (Predator), which is part of my exhibit at SITE Santa Fe in July of 2015. The embassy prepared a wonderful time-lapse video of the event, which you can see above; and also a short interview, which you can see after the jump.
