This event is a public component of the Futurefarmers “Wandering Residency” at UC Santa Cruz, the first phase of a two-year, project titled “Fog Inquiry.” In collaboration with faculty and students across campus, the artists will investigate “the atmospheric phenomenon of fog as a conceptual framework to engage various fields of inquiry within the university setting.” Futurefarmers sees fog as “a state of being whereby hierarchies get troubled, perspectives shift, and new modes of thinking (and making) can emerge.” Their January residency will lay the groundwork for frameworks of exchange that catalyze meaningful moments of “not knowing,” leading to two future phases of campus engagement. Futurefarmers work and public projects have been presented across Europe and the United States, including at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the New York Museum of Modern Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim, MAXXI in Rome, Italy, New York Hall of Sciences and the Walker Art Center.
Futurefarmers’ Fog Inquiry for the IAS and UC Santa Cruz is supported by the Nion McEvoy Family Fund of the San Francisco Community Foundation, the Gurdon Woods Visiting Artist Fund established by Jock Reynolds, and annual donors to the Institute of the Arts and Sciences. Thanks also to the support of Office for Contemporary Art Norway as well as Ray and Robin Yeh-Green, patrons of domestic wellbring for the Wandering Residency.
