A collaborative project by Claire Long and Anna Keleher
An inter-temporal "Exchange" initiated in Dartmoor National Park, England now comes to New Mexico! Through the idea of exchange, the participatory project presses against boundaries of time and preconceptions of past and present peoples and cultures. Film short - UNM Art Museum, August 28th - December 20th Visitors to Dispersal/Return at the UNM Art Museum are invited to experience "Approaching an Exchange: Dartmoor", a short collage of sound and image collected from visitors to a Bronze Age roundhouse on wild and windy Dartmoor during the project’s UK pilot phase.
Live events - September 29th and October 3rd, 10 am - 2 pm Artists Claire Long and Anna Keleher invite you to add your voice to the growing community of Exchange participants, journeying with them to a nearby prehistoric, archaeological site to share elements of your lives and cultures with the original inhabitants. Light lunch will be provided. Reservations required; early booking recommended; places limited.
