Betsy Damon’s Water Rules-Life

This post comes to you from Cultura21

Eco-artist Betsy Damon’s work Water Rules-Life will be exhibited as part of Feminist and…, organized by Guest Curator Hilary Robinson at the Mattress Factory Art Museumin Pittsburgh (USA). This exhibition, open from September 7th 2012 to May 26th 2013, aims to “show that feminism is not a single-issue set of politics but rather a multi-vocal, multi-generational and multi-cultural evolution of thinking and practices.”

Damon’s installation is “seeking lost rivers in Pittsburgh”, investigating water mismanagement by the city, and echoing a community mobilization effort in the neighborhood of  Larimer that involved rainwater harvesting.
