Interventions in Rural Space [Dialogue]

August 9, 2013 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Richard Saxton of the M12 Collective, whose Campito project is featured in Spontaneous Interventions, will be on site to discuss the notion of interventions in rural space. Though much has been written about urban interventions, Saxton, who lives in Boulder, Colorado, and is the author of A Decade of Country Hits: Art on the Rural Frontier (Jap Sam Books), has been engaged in projects such as that address the social and working conditions of rural inhabitants of the American West. Matthew Fluharty, an expert on the state of contemporary rural arts and culture, will take part in a dialogue moderated by Ryan Griffis and Sarah Ross of Regional Relationships, an organization that commissions artists, scholars, writers and activists to create works that investigate the natural, industrial and cultural landscapes of a region.
