Water and Wealth
October 15, 2020 — How can we reimagine the relationships between water and wealth? This event explored the issues raised when life-giving natural resources are commodified and waterways are privatized. How do we re-envision water as something that we hold in common? Carolina Caycedo, one of the artists commissioned as part of Commonwealth, and Mary Ebeling, Director of Women’s and Gender Studies and Associate Professor of Sociology at Drexel University, considered these questions and the overlap between their practices. Moderated by Commonwealth co-curator and Philadelphia Contemporary Director of Programs Kerry Bickford.
