Architecture as Catalyst | Shanai Matteson and Colin Kloecker, Works Progress Studio

About this event

With the theme of difference, Architecture as Catalyst 2017 invites new fictions of space, material, sensation, culture and reality by way of reflecting upon agile points/spheres of relative comparison while observing those differences which make a difference. We hope you can join us!

Shanai is a writer, artist and arts organizer who leads and supports collaborative public art and design projects. She's interested in work at the margins of established fields and practices, and believes that edges and intersections provide fertile ground for artists and designers to learn and create, with and in community.

Colin is an artist, designer and filmmaker who works at the intersection of civic engagement and public art-making. He loves projects that invite participation, inspire new connections, encourage self-reflection, and enable collaborative meaning-making. He believes we can create more resilient, playful, and supportive communities by daylighting and nourishing knowledge and creativity where it already exists.

Conceived in 2014 by Minneapolis-based Works Progress Studio, the Water Bar has served as a traveling pop-up art project that actively engages community conversations and new knowledge around place-based, hydro-social awareness of water. More than just a public art project, Water Bar functions as an experiential learning laboratory for emerging environmental leaders, and an art-sustainability incubator for communities. This lecture will discuss the Water Bar's origin, recent pop-up installations and opportunities for future community engagement.
