Mapping, Observing & Communicating: A Conversation with John Landewe

November 19, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us for a conversation with artist John Landewe and MFTA Director of Education John Cloud Kaiser. Landewe pushes the boundaries of conceptual art with his time-lapse videos, where he captures his intentional dance-like body motions created through his walks, bike rides, boat rides, and daily tasks. His only supplies are the environment around him: wharf edges, small parks, and forest lakes.

He will discuss how his work is a form of mapping, observing, and communicating the impacts happening to our environment through his personal experience. Attendees may take part in the conversation, which will be live-streamed to YouTube by submitting questions for the John Landewe during the event.*
