“CONFLUENCE,” curated by Debra Scacco opens at Track 16 Gallery (Bendix Building) on August 6, 2022 from 7 to 10pm. The group exhibition takes on the subject of environmental climate change and how it has affected our water.
Artists include: Lane Barden, Lauren Bon, Bridget Delee, Blue McRight, AnMarie Mendoza, Kori Newkirk, Alicia Piller, Emma Robbins, and Debra Scacco.
If water is life, how long can we survive a drought? When the Colorado River runs dry, how does the American West mitigate an inglorious demise? How do we balance our present built environment against the dynamics of nature? California, and the greater Southwestern United States, is grappling with a water crisis so severe it’s spawning new terminologies to articulate its severity. Despite entering the 22nd year of a mega-drought caused by our concrete commitment to impermeable landscape redesign, by and large, business continues as usual. We need not look farther than downtown Los Angeles to observe a river in its afterlife, a foundation for a crisis poured long ago.
