Tributaries: Reflections on Public Art and Water

6pm - 8.30pm

Please note: this event will take place on 18th October.

Booking required – please see the Eventbrite link below.

The Line is delighted to partner with CREATURE (Centre for Creative Arts, Cultures and Engagement) and Arup Phase 2 in organising a free symposium which will draw together artists, water specialists and researchers to explore how site-specific art and art outdoors responds to water.  East London’s increasing vulnerability to flash flooding and water pollution will be a starting point for a discussion on how art, the socio-political and the ecological are intertwined.

This event will include an exclusive screening of a new film commission by artist Helen Cammock. Taking the House Mill as its starting container, The Lay Shaft Drive is Down considers mills in relation to water, to industry, to food, to hardship and nurture: the tie to the colonial relationships that bind both people and production through contentious, often violent, yet sometimes radical histories.

Confirmed speakers include:

Joseph Cook: anthropologist, creative practitioner and boater based at University College of London, where he leads the UCL Citizen Science Academy.

Sonia Levy: inquiry-led artist whose practice explores shifting engagements with non-human worlds amidst prevailing Earthly precarities.

Lison Sabrina Musset: French-Brazilian visual artist, curator and the co-founder of The Collective Makers.

Martin Shouler: Arup’s London Water Leader working across infrastructure and building engineering.

Tributaries has been realised in partnership with Arup Phase 2 and is funded by Arts Council England and Cockayne – Grants for the Arts.
