Ethnographic Terminalia

In november a new piece of the Elsewhereness series will be exhibited in New Orleans, as part of the show Ethnographic Terminalia 2010. Other artists include Susan Hiller and Fiamma Montezemolo.

From the prospectus on the website:

“No longer content to theorize the ends of the discipline and possibilities of new media, new locations, or new methods of asking old questions, those associated with Ethnographic Terminalia are working in capacity to develop generative ethnographies that do not subordinate the sensorium to the expository and theoretical text or monograph.

Ethnographic Terminalia is an initiative designed to celebrate borders without necessarily exalting them.  It is meant to be a playful engagement with reflexivity and positionality; it seeks to ask what lies beyond and what lies within disciplinary territories.  As an initiative to bring contemporary art practices in closer proximity to forms of anthropological inquiry, Ethnographic Terminalia is primarily concerned with creating opportunities for the exhibition of non-traditional projects. The terminus is the end, the boundary, and the border; of course the terminus is also a beginning as well as its own place, its own site of experience and encounter.”
