October 27th, 2014 New York City

Patty Chang presented on The Wandering Lake: a personal, associative, narrative meditation on mourning, caregiving, geopolitics and landscape. In her lecture, Patty introduced her continued interest and exploration of cultural imaginaries. Thinking about the embodiment of site through performance, Chang uses water as a medium of politics and poetics from the Wandering Lake in Xinjiang, China, the sea coast of Newfoundland, Canada, and the Aral Sea in Muynak, Uzbekistan.
