SITEcenter: Forging a Nail: From Meteorite to Trinitite Futurefarmers with special guests

Related Event: Futurefarmers with Lucy Lippard and Eric Blinman with speakers Futurefarmers

Meem Auditorium in the Laboratory of Anthropology Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, 710 Camino Lejo on Museum Hill

Futurefarmers will reflect on their newly commissioned work for Unsettled Landscapes. Through the lens of a nail, they will tell tales that range from astronomical happenings to the highly choreographed project of the atomic bomb- a meander through material shaped by man to things that have fallen onto the Earth’s surface.

Futurefarmers is a group of diverse practitioners who create work that has the potential to destabilize logics of “certainty”. Founded in 1994, their design studio serves as a platform to support art projects, an artist in residence program and their research interests.

Tickets: $10 for adults, $5 for students, seniors, and SITE members at friend and family levels; free with advance reservation for members at the supporter level and above.
