Earth WORKS: Ten Artists on Land and Industry
George Boorujy / Gary Colclough / Blue Curry / Micah Ganske / The Institute of Critical Zoologists / Jess Littlewood / Colette Robbins / Bill Smith / Viktor Timofeev / Letha Wilson
Through the many manifestations of documentation, specific histories and potential futures, visions are formed that act as timely metaphors toward the evolution of our relationship with land and industry. The artists in Earth WORKS show how the desire to intervene and examine these relationships simultaneously illuminates the casualties of the present while igniting a promise for the future. Curated by Anneliis Beadnell and Stuart Morrison.
P.P.O.W., New York
28 june - 27 july.
Please join me at the Opening Reception on Thursday 28 june, 6 - 8 pm if you can.
