• Artifacts of the Future: Artists’ Interventions in the Environment Artist Talk

    This symposium takes place in conjunction with Mark Dion’s survey exhibition Misadventures of a 21st-Century Naturalist at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston. Since the 1990s, Dion has employed the methods of fieldwork, excavation, and cultivation to consider the history and cultural uses of nature. Taking these methods as a starting point, the symposium brings together leading artists to share their work at the interface of natural and cultural environments. Artifacts of the Future explores how landscapes index the past, present, and future, revealing histories that are inclusive of the contemporary and illuminating the complex temporality of our ecological moment.formore information
