East 2: Knoxville
LAND REPORT EAST 2
This folder contains works on view at the UT Downtown Gallery at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville (Knoxville, Tennessee) from July 3, 2015, until July 31, 2015.
Although each Land Report artist investigates formal and conceptual issues based on the landscape as an individual, the essence of our collective lies in the intersection between the things each of us point at – as if we were pointing to locations like road signs. New meanings and contexts emerge when viewers see the conversations that open up between works in an exhibition that would not normally occur when pieces are exhibited in isolation. Furthermore, the development of the work for each exhibition is a result of the artists being in direct and indirect dialogue with each other, the spaces they inhabit, and the people they interact with there. Through this active process, members of the collective make new work as if it were a conversation, even though each artist acts autonomously and there is no hierarchical structure imposed.
