Join us at noon on Sunday, April 22 at The Space!
Artists Hector Canonge and James Leonard want to know what you think about
sustainability. They will be working diligently at their conservation
laboratory station to preserve the broken remains of everyday objects from
our culture. Come visit them to share what you think is worth keeping and
what you think needs to change.
Hector Canonge and James Leonard are both interdisciplinary artists and
curators based in New York City.
Canonge’s work incorporates the use of new-media technologies, physical
environments, cinematic and performance art narratives to explore issues
related to construction of identity, gender roles, and the politics of
migration. His work has been presented in the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
Canonge's performance art work has been presented at Topaz Dance and
Gallery Space, Queens Museum of Art, Bronx Museum, Panoply Performance
Laboratory, IATI, Y Gallery, and Smack Mellon among others.
Leonard’s work incorporates installation, sculpture, performance, and
social engagement to explore issues related to environmental justice,
spiritual practice, and living with impermanence. He has shown extensively
throughout the northeastern United States, appearing at institutions
including Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Brattleboro Museum, ada
Gallery, Queens Museum, Wasserman Projects, and MASS MoCA.
This project has been developed in part with support from Sculpture Space,
Earth Day Ithaca is hosted by Sustainable Tompkins and sponsored by Beck
