UW-MANIAC hosts Amy Franceschini  (back)
 
Description:
UW-MANIAC hosts Amy Franceschini, Spring 2016 Interdisciplinary Artist-in-Residence March 3, 11:30am-1pm, Symphony Room in Gordon Commons

Amy Franceschini is the Arts Institute's Spring 2016 Interdisciplinary Artist-In-Residence, https://artsinstitute.wisc.edu/iarp/amyfranceschini/. She is a social artist and designer who explores the perceived conflict between nature and culture through public art pieces. In 1995, Amy founded Futurefarmers, http://www.futurefarmers.com/#about, an international collective of artists, activists, researchers, farmers and architects who work together to propose alternatives to the social, political and environmental organization of space. Futurefarmers use various media to deconstruct systems to visualize and understand their intrinsic logics; food systems, public transportation, education. Through this disassembly they find new narratives and reconfigurations that form alternatives to the principles that once dominated these systems. They have created temporary schools, books, bus tours, and large-scale exhibitions internationally.

We are excited to have Amy talk on March 3, 11:30am-1pm in the Symphony Room of Gordon Commons. Amy will be talking about her artistic journey, her projects and collaborations. The presentation is FREE!
