Tania Willard: o k’inādās July 22 panel

Tomas Jonsson

Tania Willard’s Bush Gallery was born out of a desire to create a space that acknowledged diverse bodies and attentions. The logistics in child care is still quite difficult to engage in contemporary art, reflected in design of institutional spaces institutions, for normative, adult bodies.  How these small bodies and hers relate, grown in, fed from, part of, but are incongruent to spaces not premised on.

Bush Gallery is a container collaboratively produced with children, with the land, and to recognize and value those things. How do we create spaces for contemporary art outside of the spaces and infrastructure where they usually exist, making time for the daily mechanics of the way we live?
