Cultivar asks: Can we imagine collective ecological futures?

Jan 27, 2021

Kade L Twist joins us for the third episode of Cultivar.

Kade L Twist is an artist, co-founder of Postcommodity, and a professor of art and social practice at Otis School of Art. Twist is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, born and raised in Bakersfield. His interdisciplinary art examines the unresolved tensions between tribal histories, market-driven systems, and American Indian cultural self-determination.

Twist discusses growing up in Bakersfield, co-founding Postcommodity, the collective’s enduring connection to music, making meaning outside the Judeo-Christian worldview that persists in American museums, and recent projects that explore midcentury architecture as an anxious land stewardship project built upon a disembodied desert ecology.
