Blank Canvas: September 5, 2018, Expo2020 UB

Tonight on Blank Canvas, guest host Michael Edwards, Associate Professor at UB and member of the Expo2020 UB team, is filling in for our regular host Amanda Coulson. He is joined by other group members: Moriah Lightbourne (Visual Art), Ashley McClain (English), Ide Thompson (English and History) and Dr. Ian Bethell-Bennett, Associate Professor, English and Cultural Studies.

They discuss the Double Dutch exhibition “Hot Water,” and the Expo2020 group’s contribution to the exhibition that came out of a summer research design project trip down through the southern Bahamas to the Exumas and Ragged Island. The group, along with art collective, Plastico Fantastico, looks at the effects of climate change as well as issues of cultural resiliency, mobility, connectivity and overall sustainability. Some of the work will inform The Bahamas’ pavilion for Expo2020 in Dubai.
