Border in flux
The Stanstead Project and other thoughts on the border with artist Althea Thauberger
The Community Art Lab of the Foreman Art Gallery is pleased to invite the public for a discussion on local border-lines. Formulated as a public discussion and artist talk, this event is meant to question notions of boundaries, geography and space in the local region. Invited artist Althea Thauberger will introduce her artistic practice and articulate her interest and involvement in the summer 2012 residency project entitled Stanstead Project or how to cross the border. Organized on the 13th of October at the Uplands Cultural and Heritage Center at 6 p.m., this off-site event combines an interest in our relationship with history, art and culture to assess the impact of border policies. It will also explore the potential role art could have toward governmental decisions. The public is invited to share their own experiences of the border in order to augment the research of the artists for this residency project. Open to all interested in history, borders and culture. Presented in English.
