Large-format film photographer James Florio explores the radical landscape of Tippet Rise, a 15,000-acre tract in the Montana wilderness. Home to large scale sculptural installations, Florio originally began to photograph the art pieces but gradually became more and more transfixed with the land itself.

During this program, attendees will be able to watch James Florio at Tippet Rise, a 17-minute documentary directed by Jeffrey Peixoto. The screening will be followed by a conversation with Florio moderated by Iker Gil, founder and editor in chief of MAS Context. A selection of print materials will be on view at the space.

Thanks to the 21c Museum Hotel Chicago for partnering for this program.
