Liquid Geographies

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Starr Foundation Hall, Room UL102, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003

Please join us for a panel discussion with artist and New School faculty member Lize Mogel; artist Dylan Gauthier; and historian Diane Galusha, that explores how water infrastructure, watersheds and other water bodies connect communities.

Lize Mogel and Diane Galusha will discuss New York City’s water supply and its impacts on the Catskill region, and unpack the complex relationship between rural and urban communities of water supply residents and water consumers, respectively. Dylan Gauthier will discuss his recent projects on the Hudson River and in the Brandywine (PA) watershed. New School faculty member and chair of the Environmental Studies program, Timon McPhearson, will introduce the event.

The goal of this dicussion is to create new understandings of the impacts of water infrastructure (and related public policy) on communities at either end of a water system, and to explore the intersection of nature, policy, and infrastructure through critical spatial practices such as socially-engaged art and counter-mapping.

Lize Mogel is an interdisciplinary artist and counter-cartographer. She is Part-Time Faculty in the Department of Urban Ecologies at The New School's Parsons. She's also an artist in resident with the NYC Urban Field Station (part of NYC Parks).

Dylan Gauthier is an artist who works at the intersection of new media, socially-engaged art, and ecology.

Diane Galusha is a historian and author of “Liquid Assets: A History of New York City’s Water System.”

Sponsored by Environmental Studies at The New School and NYC Parks.
