Final Talk in Exhibit Columbus Series to Discuss Indigenous Design in the US
Exhibit Columbus will conclude its New Middles symposium with a live conversation broadcast on Dezeen that will explore the past and future of Midwest landscapes and indigenous design. Watch here from 7:00pm UK time (2:00pm EST) on 27 October 2020.
The discussion, called New Middles: Indigenous Futures and Radical Thinking, will be moderated by Dezeen columnist and Exhibit Columbus curator Mimi Zeiger.
She will be joined by a panel of experts including designer Chris Cornelius, The Land Institute co-founder Wes Jackson, artist-architect Joar Nango and speculative artist and designer Ash Eliza Smith.
“A long timeline is central to this conversation, which asks: what are the lessons – past and future – of this land and indigenous design?” said the curators.
“How might alternative voices and perspectives in relations to land, agriculture and ways of making reimagine North American narratives?”
