Mines, Fruit, and Military Bases: A Year on the Road with Venue
During the lecture, Geoff Manaugh and Nicola Twilley discussed the ongoing research that they are developing together. They have been traveling since June 2012 as Venue, visiting sites and interviewing people whose work in some way illustrates the human relationship with built, natural, and virtual landscapes.
Venue—a pop-up interview studio and multimedia rig traveling around North America through September 30, 2013—is a project of the Center for Art + Environment at the Nevada Museum of Art, Future Plural, and Studio-X NYC, with funding provided by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF), Nevada Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Thanks so much to Wallo Villacorta and the the crew at Public Works for hosting the event, and to the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation for supporting MAS Context.
