Erratic Fieldwork: Doing Art and Art History in the Anthropocene


A mini-exhibit by Todd Stewart, associate professor of art, technology and culture, and Robert Bailey, assistant professor of art history, both at OU, also will be unveiled during the student exhibition opening.

Last year, OU School of Art and Art History faculty and students visited sites in the Great Basin, Mojave and Sonoran deserts, where human beings have significantly marked the land in artistic, scientific, militaristic and economic ways. Erratic Fieldwork: Doing Art and Art History in the Anthropocene presents images, objects, texts, sounds and an accompanying index that explores the processes through which human beings shape their surroundings as compiled by the students and faculty from this trip.

Support for the Fieldworks exhibition was provided by the Kirkpatrick Foundation, the OU Humanities Forum, the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art and the School of Art and Art History.
