From the inception of modernity, and especially as reflected by the postulates of post-modernity, the rural—both conceptually and as a material reality— has been reduced to the insignificance of either a romantic or an ironic trope. GICA investigates this phenomenon by creating an index of prominent land art works by several artists for whom the rural serves as a critical element in their conceptual and material practice.

SPENDING THE NIGHT

 

Part I: Earth Works

Part II: Assemblages

Part III: Performance

The Work of the Institute is structured as a series of curated projects that may range in duration from the length of a phonecall to several years. While some are based in established disiplinary practice, GICA encourages artists and curators to explore speculative and transdisciplinary approaches. To propose a project, please send an email and allow 2-3 weeks for a response.
