LOCATION: Proteus Gowanus

Proteus Gowanus, interdisciplinary gallery and reading room, presents THIRST, a participatory curatorial project that explores thirsty materials, plants, animals and people. Curated by Parsons The New School for Design professor Lydia Matthews and Current Collective, a transdisciplinary team of graduate students from Parsons The New School for Design, it will feature an evolving installation, an open archive and a series of hands-on workshops that highlight the politics and pleasures surrounding Brooklyn’s waters, actively linking events in the past to our present conditions. Workshops will teach water-based crafts of felting and dyeing with locally sourced plants, explore the challenges of water purification and fresh water access, investigate the popularity of hydroponic farming and small-scale craft liquor production, and more. The exhibition will also feature work from *Sponge HQ is an interdisciplinary lab, workshop, classroom and project space installed at the Virginia Commonwealth University’s Anderson Gallery in Richmond, VA.
