Artist James Leonard is traveling the country with his Tent of Casually Observed Phenologies, making one-day stops to give climate change divinatory readings inside a special, hand-sewn tent. Leonard explains, “A lot of thought has gone into The Tent of Casually Observed Phenologies. I wanted to create a space for contemplation, where participants can slow down, articulate questions and find clarity. Climate change is a universal concern. Art is the perfect place for expressing and evaluating concern.”
James Leonard is an internationally exhibited artist. He recently finished a 2016 artist residency at MASS MoCA. In 2015, he was artist-in-residence at the Boston Center for the Arts. When not on the road, he lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
The CMCA showing is presented in conjunction with the Camden International Film Festival and Lauren Henkin | Second Nature.
