SUSTAIN: A Public Art Experience

June 1 - June 9

Monica Jahan Bose presents SUSTAIN, a public art project that brings together communities in Washington DC and her ancestral village of Katakhali in Bangladesh to create saris and a soundwalk about food insecurity and the climate crisis. Curated by Sarah Tanguy, SUSTAIN is a collective response to sustainability featuring community-sourced poetry and art on saris with a special focus on urban and rural eco-agriculture. Co-created with women farmers from Bose’s endangered coastal village and DC participants, the 18-foot-long fuchsia and aqua saris wrap around the six grand columns of LINE DC’s façade and form a welcoming passageway at Unity Park in the Adams Morgan neighborhood.
