A Proposition by Miwon Kwon: Ends of the Earth (and Back)
April 23 – 24 2010
Miwon Kwon’s proposition Ends of the Earth (and Back) is a work-in-progress report on the exhibition “Ends of the Earth: Land Art to 1977,” currently scheduled to open at the Geffen Contemporary at Los Angeles MoCA in fall 2012. Co-organized with MoCA curator Philipp Kaiser, the exhibition seeks to capture the simultaneous impulse emergent in the 1960s to use the earth as an artistic medium and to locate works in remote sites far from familiar art contexts. Kwon will share some of the preliminary ideas, artworks, and challenges that are shaping the thinking about the exhibition and its goals. Her special guest on Saturday, April 25 is Dr. Alexander Nagel.
The structure of Propositions is as follows:
Friday, 7:00 PM – Initial proposition and lecture
Saturday, 12:00 PM – Alexander Nagel responds, followed by Discussion
