In this episode, we delve into the fascinating world of rivers as we talk to artist Carolina Caycedo, whose work contemplates human and river relationships by breaking down boundaries between activism and artmaking. Additionally, we discuss the destructive effects of damming with geomorphologist Frank Magilligan (Dartmouth), before further discussing Caycedo’s works with curator Carla Acevedo-Yates and art historian Lisa Blackmore.
