|COMMEMORATING THE IMPORTANCE OF |
WEAD MEMBERS AND WOMEN’S ART HISTORYSIMULATED SACRED GROVE, (3rd Space Forest) Redwood and Banyan Trees, 2014.March is U.S. Women’s History Month. WEAD joins with The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and Holocaust Memorial Museum to commemorate and encourage the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in American history.
These goals mirror WEAD’s global mission statement: to educate others, to promote, network and support all women artists working with critical issues of eco and social justice.
Beyond March WEAD will continue to mark 2020 as Women’s Year—especially noting the U.S. 100th anniversary of achieving Women right to vote. Let’s celebrate 2020 as Women’s Decade, and beyond, Women’s Century.
The future is ours to shape, but the historical work that has come before functions as our foundation. To properly commemorate our past, present and future histories, WEAD here spotlights 10 members’ work, one per day for the next 10 days.ARTIST NO. 5
COLLECTIVE CANVAS (New World Landscape), 3rd Space Lab Collective Member, 2014.Trena Noval’s interdisciplinary work crosses experience design, social practice, science, digital media, community engagement and food adventures. At the heart of her work is the investigation of cultural and natural ecosystems, experiences of everyday life, radical hospitality and research as an art platform. Over the last decade, collaboration has become an important part of her work process. Currently she has been exploring the role of collective thinking and actions in a variety of contexts with others, forming communities of mutual practice.
In 2012, Noval and Bangalore artist Lalitha Shankar founded 3rd Space Lab Collective, whose mission is to establish a global commons exploring Bangalore India, and the San Francisco Bay Area. As a cultural exchange collective with artists from the Bay Area and Bangalore, India, 3rd Space Lab is interested in forming a new landscape of merged cultural thinking and identity through developing a mutual art practice.
