Meet Over Lunch: The Good Death Roundtable with Heide Hatry (Icons in Ash)

Hosted by

Residency Unlimited & Bethany Tabor

Thursday, November 01

1:00pm-2:00pm

Join Bethany Tabor and Icons in Ash artist Heide Hatry at this special Good Death Roundtable session to consider and discuss the intersection of artistic practice and alternative modes of memorialization.

The Good Death Roundtable is a forum that seeks to foster a better relationship with our mortality through open discussion that brings death out of the taboo as well as asks us to imagine our own deaths in an effort of preparedness and understanding. Bethany Tabor will lead an open-format conversation with artist Heide Hatry whose project Icons in Ash investigates memorialization and image-making as well as explores alternative, artistic uses of cremated remains. How does this mode of memorialization push forward how we live with the remains of our loved ones? What does having cremated remains dwelling in an art object mean for our relationship with death? The Meet Over Lunch series is an ongoing invitation extended to local and visiting art practitioners to present their practice and projects over lunch to the RU community.
