Confab 2019 with Aurora Robson
Intercepting the Plastic Waste Stream
October 5th, 2019
Chattanooga

Join MSA in welcoming Aurora Robson as our keynote speaker for Confab 2019


Confab is a one day event built on the idea of a fireside chat. Where presenters and attendees have the opportunity to listen, learn, and get to know each other through the course of the day.

MSA keynote speaker, Aurora Robson, is a multi-media artist known predominantly for her meditative work intercepting the plastic waste stream. Her practice is about shifting negative trajectories. Her work formally references recurring nightmares that she had as a child which she hybridizes with organic forms found in nature. Robson holds a double major (B.A.) in visual arts and art history from Columbia University.

Her work has been featured in Sculpture Magazine, Art in America, WIRED, Art & Antiques, the cover of Green Building + Design and other publications. She is a recipient of the Pollock Krasner Grant, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Sculpture, a TED/Lincoln Re-Imagine Prize, a National Endowment for the Arts Art Work Grant and an Annenberg Scholar.

After Robson's presentation there will be a lunch buffet followed by the 10x10 Scholarship Presentations. This year ten students will win a $1,000 scholarship funded through a generous donation gifted to MSA by Dianne Komminsk. These talented students will share their work in short ten minute presentations. 

Next, the Environmental Responsibilities & Sculpture panelists will take the stage. Confab will end with a tour and short presentation at Branch Technologies new plant. Branch Technologies is an archtectural fabricator specializing in large-scale 3D printing. They bring unprecedented design freedom and resource stewardship to the construction industry.
