Gavin Kroeber and Rebecca Uchill will be participating in the “Town & Country II” session at Mildred’s Lane this summer, leading workshops and presenting on June 22 and 23.
The larger session runs June 18, 2012 - July 8, 2012, and will also feature Hope Ginsburg, Fritz Haeg, Pablo Helguera, Jane Marsching, Deadskin Press (Megan O’Connell and Leon Johnson), Stephanie Smith and others to be announced soon.
As our friends at Mildred’s Lane put it: “This session focuses on the complex relationship between the city and the countryside by investigating the place the rural world occupies in the projections, fantasies, economy, and antagonism of the cosmopolitan set. This dialectic is responsible for a cultural production as diverse as the invention of Adirondack style, the formation of 60’s communes, “Urban Cowboy” and the new urban garden movement. The goal of this session is to critique and move beyond the cultural illusions which promote the city and the country as disconnected realms of experience.”
