KC Adams, Mariana Muñoz Gomez, and Graham Young: Orienting Self, Place, and History
Thursday, September 15, 7:00-8:30 pm CDT
Facilitated on Zoom and live-streaming on the School of Art Gallery, University of Manitoba YouTube channel. ASL interpretation and closed captioning available.
Join Graham Young, Manitoba Museum Curator of Geology and Paleontology, and exhibiting artists KC Adams and Mariana Muñoz Gomez for a panel exploring different ways to orient oneself to the rock formation from which Tyndall Stone is excavated. Young will locate the Red River Formation in time and geologic history, connecting the tropical sea where this rock formed to its current extent across Manitoba and beyond. Adams will speak about her artwork which is materially and relationally grounded in the place when the rock outcropped naturally along the Red River. Muñoz Gomez will discuss their artwork contemplating two rock bodies at either ends of Turtle Island—Tyndall Stone, and volcanic stone from Morelos, México. These three 20-minute presentations, followed by a Q&A, will offer ways to consider how awareness of this rock formation underground can reorient one’s relationship to time, place, and personal history.
