Sighting a Geologic Turn at the 2011 Art + Environment Conference

FOP just returned from the Art + Environment Conference in Reno, Nevada, hosted by the Nevada Museum of Art. And, as we mentioned last February, this year we attended with a particular frame in mind,

“to sense and document how “the geologic” is taken up, discussed, and expressed by presenters and audience. We plan to relay signals back to the FOP blog from inside the conference.  We’ll watch for how artists, architects, scientists, bloggers, curators and educators imply or explicitly address how geologic force and materiality inflect the work they do. Our hope is that the A+E 2011 conference can lend specific insights into how artists are expressing and experiencing geologic force as a condition of contemporary life and creative practice.”

We’re happy to announce that our responses to this year’s conference have been posted on the PopTech blog and can be accessed here: Part 1 and Part 2.
