Lee Pivnik, artist and founder of the Institute of Queer Ecology, joins us for the first ever episode of Cultivar.
Lee Pivnik (b. 1995) is a Miami-based artist who graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Sculpture with a concentration in Nature-Culture-Sustainability Studies. Working predominantly in sculpture, video and social practice, he has a deep reverence for networks, care practices, and other species.
In 2017 he started the Institute of Queer Ecology, a collaborative organism which broadens discussions around environmental issues by synthesizing queer and feminist theory and decolonial thinking into exhibitions and publications. In his artwork and curatorial projects, he attempts to help produce the world he wants to see emerge from this ripe socio-environmental crisis.
