Artist Walk Through
The Last Pine Tree
14 May 2013, Tuesday
3:30 – 5:00PM
Join Kat Palasi on Tuesday, the 14th of May 2013, from 3:30PM onwards at the Vargas Museum, 3rd floor galleries, for a talk and walk-through of her current exhibition – The Last Pine Tree. Here, Palasi’s photographic works on paper and Duratrans highlight issues that are close to her heart, telling a story of industry through dispossession.
The Last Pine Tree documents a struggle between heritage and preservation and the forces of modernization and economic development. Palasi’s photographs show how land, language, and customs become “special pockets of resistance” through which an indigenous culture struggles to stay alive, even as it is pushed towards the margins.
For this, we invite not only fellow outdoor enthusiasts and photographers, but anyone concerned with the effects of marginalization and the patrimony of indigenous peoples everywhere.
Admission to the walk through is free.
