Have a Tea, Leave a Trace

Have a Tea — Leave a Trace: Event Photos.

For the OPEN ENGAGEMENT symposium (Regina, Canada) and the 1st Public Intervention Day of Southern Exposure (San Francisco) I provided the Mobile Tea Ceremony as an act of collective memory making.

Within the 1st Public Art/Urban Interventions Day of Southern Exposure and the Intersection for the Arts presented work by 10 artists (selected out of 36 submissions) who used the city as a platform for creativity and expression. Visitors were able to download a map and schedule to locate the live projects that were juried by Erik Knutzen, Program Developer, Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI).

The 1st Public Art/Urban Interventions Day on December 1, 2007 was jointly organized by:


Southern Exposure
Located in San Francisco's Mission District, Southern Exposure is a non-profit, artist-run organization for over three decades, dedicated to presenting diverse, innovative, contemporary art, arts education, and related programs and events in an accessible environment. Southern Exposure is dedicated to giving artists — whether they are exhibiting, curating, teaching, or learning — an opportunity to realize ideas for projects that may not otherwise find support.

The Intersection for the Arts
The Intersection for the Arts is San Francisco's oldest alternative art space (est. 1965) and has a long history of presenting new and experimental work in the fields of literature, theater, music, dance, and the visual arts. Intersection provides a place where provocative ideas, diverse art forms, artists, and audiences can intersect one another.


Open Engagement
Between October 11-13, 2007, I realized Have a Tea, Leave a Trace at the conference Open Engagement: Art After Aesthetic Distance organized by Jennifer Delos Reyes. This was a hybrid project that used a conference on socially engaged art practices as its foundation and incorporated elements including workshops, exhibitions, residencies, pedagogy, curatorial practice and collaboration. The event was hosted by the University of Regina, the Dunlop Art Gallery, The Mackenzie Art Gallery and various local Regina residents from October 11-13, 2007. Over 40 national and international contributors were present.
