Pitzer College Art Galleries Director Ciara Ennis welcomes artist Hans Baumann to join the Pitzer Community on Zoom for talk about his work and recent exhibition Hans Baumann: 5 Distillations (Salton Sea), presented earlier this semester at Pitzer’s Lenzner Family Art Gallery.
5 Distillations (Salton Sea) examines the political frameworks and biophysical processes that created—and now imperil—the largest body of water in the State of California. Drawing from empirical observation, archival research and the artist’s long-term collaboration with the Torres Martinez Desert Cahuilla Indians, this project reflects upon the inevitable collapse of a vast inland sea that has sustained the indigenous people of this region since time immemorial.
A brief Q & A will follow the talk.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be contacted with the Zoom link.
Presented in collaboration with the Office of Alumni & Family Engagement and the Pitzer College Art Galleries.
