Artist Francis Cape in conversation with Cari Freno, an assistant professor of art. The Berman Conversation series pairs exhibiting artists with Ursinus faculty members for a dynamic exchange of interests and ideas. Following nearly a decade of architectural interventions that addressed the inseparability of art from its context, Cape turned to projects that confront issues outside the studio and gallery circuit. Spurred by the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina as well as by the economic decay of his own community, Cape’s work explores the connection between art, the environment and social change.
