Event Details

The INSTALLATION SPACE announces the opening of “all that moves” by Allison Maria Rodriguez on Friday, October 22 from 4:00pm – 8:00pm at 49 Eagle Street in North Adams, MA.
“all that moves” is an immersive multi-channel video installation exploring themes of physical and spiritual interconnection within hidden worlds.
Utilizing the site of Churchill Manitoba – right at the arctic’s edge – as a foundation, this work bears witness to the story embedded in the landscape. From the unexpected beauty of an arctic summer, to the life cycle of water fleas, this work celebrates the artistry of the overlooked while also testifying to the urgent necessity of looking closer.
The North is a place often forgotten by the rest of the world, but it is here that it is possible to see the impact of climate change most clearly. The fatal flaws of a colonial world view are spotlighted against a stark tundra – remnants from thoughtless actions to genocide hold visceral energy in a place seemingly unmarred by human intervention.
Reflecting the place itself, the installation is a quiet meditation on our collective oneness and a testament that our stories, and our futures, are eternally linked. All materials used in the work were gathered during an Earthwatch Fellowship at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre, where the artist experienced profound personal discoveries. She is immensely grateful to both Earthwatch and the CNSC for this incredible opportunity.
Allison Maria Rodriguez is a first-generation Cuban-American interdisciplinary artist working predominantly in video installation. Her work focuses extensively on climate change, species extinction and the interconnectivity of existence. She is the recipient of an Earthwatch Communications Fellowship, a grand prize winner of the Creative Climate Awards, and was honored in 2019 by WBUR as one of The ARTery 25 (25 millennials of color impacting arts & culture in Boston). In addition to her practice, Rodriguez is also a curator, educator and arts organizer.
