Inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s and Roni Horn’s engagement with landscape as both subject and object, this program explores the question of an animated landscape. Terry Gunnell, professor of folklore in Iceland, and Elizabeth Hutchinson, professor of art history who specializes in Native American traditions and American art, consider the ways in which Iceland and the American southwest are rich territories for living landscapes. Moderated by Sina Najafi, editor of Cabinet Magazine. Organized by artist Spencer Finch as part of the My Turn series.
