For the Common Good: Meet The Remediators
November 8, 2014—April 5, 2015
City Gallery in the Historic Water Tower, 806 N. Michigan Ave.
Nancy Klehm and Emmanuel Pratt
Nancy Klehm and Emmanuel Pratt are leaders in the genre of contemporary art called Social Practice, with significant involvement in environmental concerns. The displays here illustrate that while aquaponics and bioremediation may be big concept ideas, they are scalable to domestic use with readily available materials. Deeply rooted in community, the work of Klehm and Pratt involves neighborhood youth and volunteer efforts to create gardens and urban farms that expand awareness of local and global issues.
