(SESSION 1) EVENING EXHIBITION TOUR: Dams
Reservoirs, Reclamation, Renewal
Thursday, December 8, 2022 - 4:30 PM
Enjoy refreshments as you tour the exhibition with The Museum’s curators. Participating artist Eirik Johnson will join the tour and discuss his work as part of Dams.
Coinciding with renewed dialogue about the possibility of breaching dams throughout the Columbia River Basin, this BIG IDEA project offers a conversation about the impact of dams on Idaho and the American West. For more than a century, dams have shaped Idaho’s landscapes, ecosystems and economies. At this historic moment, the project considers the history of damming in the Pacific Northwest, the effects of dams on the region, and a reimagined future for rivers and the life dependent on them in the American West.
SVMoA has commissioned artists Carolina Caycedo, Eirik Johnson, James Prosek and Rachel Teannalach to create new work for the exhibition, including large-scale and immersive installations.
This tour takes place from 4:30–5:20pm.
Part of the BIG IDEA project Dams: Reservoirs, Reclamation, Renewal.
