Season 2, Ep.5 : Christy Gast, Contested Landscapes

CB Radio hosts interview artist Christy Gast whose work across media reflects her interest in issues of economics and the environment, and the role of content in giving meaning to the experience and form of the work.

Gast's work stems from extensive research and site visits to places she thinks of as "contested landscapes". These range from beaver-ravaged sub-Antarctic forests, to a mountain in PhoenixArizona undergoing a politicized name change, to the extensively engineered canals and dikes around Lake Okeechobee that divert water from the Everglades

She is interested in places where there is evidence of conflict in human desires, which she traces, translates or mirrors through her art practice.


Gast is based in New York, and her work has been exhibited at MoMA/P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, Performa, Artists Space, Harris Lieberman Gallery and Regina Rex in New York; the Perez Art Museum of Miami, Bass Museum of Art, de la Cruz Collection, Locust Projects, Casa Lin and Gallery Diet in Miami; as well as Mass MoCA, the American University Museum, L.A.C.E., High Desert Test Sites, Centro Cultural Matucana 100 and the Kadist Foundation Paris.

She has received grants and awards from the Art Matters Foundation, Funding Arts Network, South Florida Cultural Consortium, Tigertail, the American Austrian Foundation Hayward Prize, and the Joan Sovern Sculpture Award from Columbia University.
