Our friends at The Vera List Center for Art and Politics is pleased to present La Siembra, a performance and roundtable discussion convened by 2020–2022 Borderlands Fellow Carolina Caycedo, who returns to her September 2021 vigil and pagamento that was hosted in the context of her installation Genealogy of Struggle* in El Museo del Barrio’s Estamos Bien – La Trienal 20/21. Compostable items from the vigil have been nurturing the soil in the community garden at Union Settlement, where Caycedo is now planting a memorial tree and installing a sonic marker for murdered environmental activists.
The roundtable discussion includes Arizona water protectors Nellie Jo David and Amber Ortega, and Tatiana Roa Avendaño, an environmentalist, educator, and researcher at CENSAT Agua Viva. The discussion is moderated by Romy Opperman, Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Philosophy at The New School for Social Research.
