“Borderless: Together Outside” A Panel Discussion with New Public Artwork

March 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Borderless: Together Outside series kicks off with a panel discussion led by Paloma Mayorga and artwork by Darcie Book. Mayorga will moderate a conversation about human relationships to nature and landscape with panelists Jamal Hussain, Kill Joy, and Mueni Loko Rudd, taking place on Sunday March 24th, 6:00 – 8:00 PM at Dimension Gallery Sculpture Park. The conversation coincides with The Land Stares Back, an interactive art intervention by Darcie Book. Please bring your picnic blankets and pillows for lawn seating. Limited chair seating will be available for those who need it.

The Borderless: Together Outside series addresses topics at the intersection of art and environmentalism, led by Austin’s LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and refugee communities. Some of our most vulnerable populations feel unsafe and unwelcome in our shared outdoor spaces, and are therefore less likely to experience the joy and major health benefits of time spent in nature. Our goal is to make change in this area through the ongoing community series, and other collaborative efforts. The project’s background is aligned with the artistic practice of founder, Darcie Book, as it considers our complex human relationship with the land. The idea is that we look into a landscape and the land looks right back at us. The land is aware. It is alive, and it sees us.

This project is supported in part by the City of Austin Economic Development Department and made possible by our generous hosts at Dimension Gallery Sculpture Park, Colin McIntyre and Moya McIntyre.
