The Ghosting of America’s Past
April 27 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Join us to consider how a history of America’s past affects the present and the future. Panelists include ‘Nature’s Nation’ artists Valerie Hegarty and Cannupa Hanska Luger/Mandan/Hidatsa/Arikara/Lakota). Moderated by PEM curators Karen Kramer and Austen Barron Bailly.
This lecture will be followed by a screening of “Through the Repellent Fence.” Follow the indigenous arts collective Postcommodity as they construct Repellent Fence/Valla Repelente, a two-mile long land installation straddling the U.S.-Mexico border. Crossing the border, the artwork’s “scare eye” is redeployed to “see” connections between cultures and land.
Lecture 1-2:30 pm | Film screening 3:15-4:00 pm | Morse Auditorium | Included with admission | Reservations recommended at pem.org/ghostingamerica
Held in conjunction with ‘Nature’s Nation: American Art and Environment’ and made possible by the Margaret Nowell Graham Lecture Fund.
