Residency at The Center for
Land Use Interpretation
nowhere has been accepted to an artist-in-residence program at the Center for Land Use Interpretation through 2009. Located at Wendover Air Force Base in Wendover, Utah, on the edge of the Bonneville Salt Flats, the residency will afford Nowhere the chance to investigate the beautiful anomalies of the region. Following their natural curiosity about place, nowhere crew members will travel into the Great Basin to learn how human intervention has shaped the region, and the environmental and social consequences of those actions. Read more about their desert experiences in the fall edition of Imprint magazine.
The group will return to Portland with objects and videos for the exhibition, Out of Place, at Disjecta February 28 through March 28, 2009.
High Desert Test Sites
Charissa Niles and Brennan Conaway traveled to Joshua Tree National Monument in June 2008 to help with HDTS’s summertime presentation. The weekend event included a screening of the film “House Without a Door” by London-based artist Bernd Behr, a former resident at CLUI, and “Homes and Haunts of Exile Hollywood,” by Cornelius Schnauber. Organized by the artist Andrea Zittel and friends, the High Desert Test Sites are a series of experimental art sites that provide alternative space for experimental works by both emerging and established artists.
