Event DescriptionDrawing on both historical perspectives and personal stories, Blue Crush considers the ways that we inherit, inhabit, and embody our differing lived experiences, and how these experiences inform our relationship to swimming.
By positioning sites such as pools and beaches as both places of recreation, and as colonized and contested spaces, swimming and beach culture are explored through the intimacy of personal narratives within the larger context of social and political realties. From the history of the breast stroke to All Bodies Swim's, from civil rights wade-in's to coming-of-age experiences in Christianwaterparks, Blue Crush is an intersectional portrait of swim culture.
