Joel Sheesley “The Paradoxical Landscape Frame”

Date: September 20, 2018 Time: 6:45 PM - 8:00 PM
Event Description Exhibited alongside the Schingoethe Center’s collection of American Indian artifacts, A Fox River Testimony invites questions about ways of framing the landscape. The Western European art tradition has taught us to frame landscapes as pictures in a way that contrasts sharply with the Native American approach to landscape. The European tradition of framing, or picture-making, can be seen as a paradoxical strategy that simultaneously presents and obscures the landscape it offers as subject. The esthetic frame, when acknowledged as self-reflexive and culturally oriented, can still be a useful window through which to observe the landscape. In partnership with The Conservation Foundation's Fox River Initiative
