ABOUT THE PROJECT

NYC-based artist collective Environmental Performance Agency (EPA) will engage with the public to explore and visualize complex webs of connections that are elaborated from engagement with and attunement to “undesirable plant species” of Colorado Springs. 


ABOUT EPA

The Environmental Performance Agency (EPA) is an artist collective founded in 2017 and named in response to the ongoing rollback of Federal environmental policy at the US Environmental Protection Agency. Appropriating the acronym EPA, the collective’s primary goal is to shift thinking around the terms environment, performance, and agency – using artistic, social, and embodied / kinesthetic practices to advocate for the agency of all living performers co-creating our environment, specifically through the lens of spontaneous urban plants, native or migrant. Current EPA Agents include Catherine Grau, andrea haenggi, Ellie Irons, Christopher Kennedy, and the spontaneous urban plants of New York City.
