The Anti-Grand online catalog is up and is fantastic. More information about the exhibition, director’s foreword and curator preface, images plus each artist has either an interview or a short essay about their work on the ‘artists’ page, including another interview with me and Kenta Murakami.
On view January 15 through March 6, 2015, in the Harnett Museum of Art, is the exhibition Anti-Grand: Contemporary Perspectives on Landscape. The exhibition features 24 contemporary, international artists, artists’ collectives and game developers who examine, challenge, and re-define the concept of landscape while simultaneously drawing attention to humanity’s hubristic attempts to relate to, preserve, and manage the natural environment. Through abstraction and simulation, parody and pastiche, the artists explore the ways in which we relate to the land, working in video, installation, video games, and traditional two- and three-dimensional work.
