Panel Discussion with Penelope Stewart, Diane Borsato, Panya Clark Espinal
Moderated by Jenn Law

Penelope Stewart’s ongoing artistic investigations mine the rich metaphoric and poetic associations of the beehive, viewed as a democratic model and symbol of idealism –particularly by Modernist architects and designers. After an artist-led tour through Stewart’s Vanitas exhibition at the Koffler Gallery, visual artists Diane Borsato and Panya Clark Espinal join in a conversation moderated by artist, writer and researcher Jenn Law, to examine connections between their respective practices and explore shared interests in the relationship between nature and the built environment, utopian constructs, social interaction and ecological impact.
