Lydia Moyer Exhibit and Artist in Residence, October 2023

Bunnell Street Arts Center welcomes multidisciplinary artist,  Lydia Moyer from September 23rd – October 22rd as artist in residence. Moyer will exhibit work, share an artist talk, and offer community workshops throughout the month of October at Bunnell Street Arts Center.

Join us in welcoming printmaker, social art practitioner and filmmaker Lydia Moyer, as she hosts an artist talk on October 6 at 6pm at Bunnell. Moyer introduces her work and a series of give-away posters which advocate for multi-species justice by asking “what is best for …” numerous categories of beings from rabbits to rivers as a way of advocating for multi-species justice.

While in residence, Moyer will host two flipbook workshops on October 11 and 18 from 5 to 7 pm at Bunnell. Participants will create flipbooks with post-it pads, and turn them into digital animations using smart phones. Registration by donation.

Moyer’s film art will be included in a screening at Bunnell at 7:30 pm October 14, 2023 as part of a Film Jam curated by Michael Walsh.

Moyer says, “My work is a transpersonal response to a sense of crisis in the world. It casts the individual amidst the collective, wrestling with the overwhelming social, political, and environmental concerns that are the shadow of late capitalism, particularly as it looms in the U.S. I bear witness to these concerns alternately by conflating one with another, speaking from the past or future in order to address the present, and playing with the absurd and uncanny amidst melancholy and grief. Moving equally and sometimes seamlessly between self-created and existing materials, I hope to evoke a felt-sense of unshielded – and unheroic – awareness through image, sound, and text.”

With grant support from Homer Foundation, Alaska Community Foundation and RURAL CAP/Thriving Communities, Bunnell Street Arts Center is pleased to present HEART residencies (Healing and Engagement Through Art) featuring a series of workshops in 2023-2024 to spark joy, health and healing for people living around Kachemak Bay.
