Reading the River

Video recording:

To honor Earth Day, Basia Irland, UNM Art and Art History Professor Emerti, will present Reading the River at the UNM SUB Ballroom C from 5:30 to 7:30 pm on Wednesday, April 24. In this talk, Irland will discuss how her work as an artist and activist explores international water issues especially waterborne diseases, drought, and rivers she has explored in Africa, Canada, Europe, South America, Southeast Asia, and the United States. She will get into the mud, muck, complexities, and eddies around each bend in a river’s course. No one can exist without clean water and yet it is often polluted beyond measure, with toxins, medical waste, and factory debris clogging the arteries upon which we rely for our very existence.
