In this episode of Securing Justice, we share with you a second panel discussion hosted by CCEP, titled “Representations of Place, Home, and Insecurity”. For this conversation, we invited three creatives--a filmmaker, a visual artist, and a theater maker--whose creative work somehow examines these themes in Southern California. The impact of art and artists on the city is a widely studied topic, and something that any urban resident has probably seen or felt in their day-to-day lives. For this reason I think listeners outside of California will still find this conversation relevant to their own experiences.
- Jeremiah Hammerling: Emmy-award-winning documentary filmmaker, who has worked on a number of projects including City Rising for KCET.
- Alvaro Marquez: a visual artist and educator whose interdisciplinary practice integrates print-making, fiber art, installation, and sculpture.
- Marike Splint: a theater maker, Fulbright Scholar, faculty member in the Department of Theater at UCLA, and she specializes in creating work in public space that explores the relationship between people, places, and identity.
Moderated by Professor Rennie Tang, a designer, educator, and Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture at CPP, whose research interests include kinesthetic engagement in urban landscapes, intergenerational playscape for health and wellbeing, and choreographic spatial practices.
