Fábrica de Arte Américas
April 26 - April 30
Artists Andrea Bowers, Justen LeRoy, and JR’s Inside Out Project present three powerful art installations and interventions to the Denver community, in partnership with the Cities Summit of the Americas (CSOA) at The Slate Denver Warehouse.
The cultural warehouse features three renowned artists:
Acclaimed artist Andrea Bowers’ silk-screened Protest Ribbons are messages which bring urgent focus to social justice and our current climate emergency such as “System change not climate change”; “Forests are the lungs of the earth”; “Women and the earth have to tolerate a lot.” Samples of Andrea’s work can be found here.
Multidisciplinary artist Justen LeRoy’s multi-screen video installation, “Lay me down in praise” (2022), insists the Earth’s aches and upheavals are entangled with Black resistance and liberation, and was previously shown at Mark Bradford’s Art + Practice, with the support of The California African American Museum.
Celebrated French artist JR’s Inside Out Project, in community with the Climate Migration Council, will photograph young leaders from the Americas coming together in Denver to raise awareness for the 200 million individuals expected to be displaced by 2050 due to climate change, and the need for human-centered solutions. The portraits will be wheat pasted onto the side of the Slate Denver Hotel during the Summit to create a large-scale artwork showing solidarity for global action at a local level. The Inside Out Project’s work can be found here.
The Cultural Warehouse at The Slate Denver Warehouse is curated by FloraJane DiRienzo, Executive Director of the Biennial of the Americas (The Biennial), which creates connections, builds community and inspires change across the Americas.
