The Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI), the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA), and ISEA2012 present “No Places with Names: A Critical Acoustic Archaeology”
“What is the significance of the idea of wilderness in contemporary culture?” Wilderness as an idea has traditionally fueled colonial, spiritual and environmentalist agendas, but conversations with local artists, scientists, archaeologists, and Santa Fe area residents reveal the diverse attitudes and perceptions held within the mix of cultures that define the contemporary American Southwest.
No Places with Names: A Critical Acoustic Archaeology (sound walk opens on September 19; exhibition reception with sound walk and IAIA dome presentation September 22; ISEA Santa Fe Day September 25) project is the culmination of an ISEA2012 residency with artist Teri Rueb, who pioneered this form of GPS-based interactive installation with her project “Trace” developed at the Banff Centre for the arts from 1996-1999. Her collaborators on the project are Larry Phan & Carmelita Topaha.
