Bolivar Gallery in SA/VS
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s):
James Enos

This event will be a conversation with collaborators including Andrea Ngan, Stephen Ramos, and others.

James A. Enos is an Associate Professor of Art at The University of Georgia whose research and teaching engages issues of Dr. Enosspace and social practice in an effort to understand how public cultures respond to change. Spurred by issues of climate, trade, migration and immigration; his current work looks at ports and the global-to-planetary politics of memory and urbanization. 
Enos has served as artist, director, and founder for several public projects; including, The Periscope Project, Drone Readymade, Exploring Engagement, Port Journeys, HyperCultural Passengers, WeTrees, and Port Futures / Social Logistics. He holds a BS from Purdue University’s School of Technology, M. Arch from The NewSchool of Architecture, and MFA from the University of California San Diego. 
Hosted by The University of Kentucky’s Visual Practices and Experimental Geographies, Enos will present Those Gentle Waves of Pay Dirt, Good Mourning of Age and Memory, in addition to a brief synopsis of public and institutional collaborations. His interest lies in expanding dialog surrounding the complex mediation of composite identities—and backdrops for— the theater of daily life working across generations, spacio-political geographies, and zones of conflict.
