Join The Museum of Fine Arts for Broken Ground: New Directions in Land Art opening reception February 17th from 6:00-8:00pm. The exhibition will be curated by Jeff Beekman.
The Museum is eager to premier Guest Curator Jeff Beekman’s Broken Ground on February 17 from 6-8pm: the Land Art movement “has grown to encompass issues of ecology and sustainability, an exploration of how human and natural forces have shaped one another in historical and contemporary landscapes, and an exploration of past approaches to the mythologies we have about land, particularly as it relates to the concept of manifest destiny and borders.” On the preceding evening (Thursday before the show opens), visiting artists Kade L. Twist and Cristobal Martinez, two of the 3-artist Postcommodity Collective will lecture in the William Johnson Building auditorium. Later in February (at 4:00 on February 21 and at 7:00 on February 28), Lucy Raven’s digital still animation film China Town, tracing copper mining from Nevada to Asia, will be screened in 249 FAB.
Reception February 17, 6-8pm.
