Speaker: Lynn Cazabon
Artist Lynn Cazabon will discuss her ongoing public art project Uncultivated, a multi-faceted representation of the urban landscape of Baltimore over an extended period of time, via its wild plant life. Commonly known as ‘weeds’, the project draws attention to the tiny pockets of wildness within the urban environment in order to break down hierarchies that privilege certain aspects of nature at the expense of others. For this project, Cazabon is working with horticulturalist Chris Partain to identify the plants that appear in her photographs and to create a database of information on them. For more information, see the project's website: http://uncultivated.info
Lynn Cazabon is Associate Professor of Art at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Her work in photography, video and installation has been exhibited both nationally and internationally in solo and group exhibitions, and she has received numerous fellowships and grants for her work.
