With work by Joan Jonas, Pablo Helguera, Martha Raquel Herrera, and Bernardo Rosa.
The Ocean We Inhabit will be the inaugural exhibition of PlanetArt Fund, a non-profit organization that will advocate environmental awareness and change. It will consist of a multisensory experience at the National Aquarium in Baltimore creating a tribute to our oceans through dance, video, narrative performance, and sound art. The exhibition will feature a video art projection by the pioneer of performance and video art, Joan Jonas, the U.S Representative of the 56th Venice Biennale, 2015. Socially engaged Mexican artist Pablo Helguera will create a site-specific narrative performance, and Portuguese composer Bernardo Rosa will create a sound art piece. Colombian-Italian dance therapist and architect Martha Raquel Herrera will lead a workshop where the children of Baltimore will create their own extemporaneous dance. The exhibition will be converted into a documentary, which will travel to other museums and aquarium venues.
The Ocean We Inhabit is presented as part of a festival of final projects curated by the inaugural class of SVA MA Curatorial Practice.
