Artist Talk & {Pre}HAPPENING

PreHapArtistTalkArtists - McLean Fahnestock w/ Michael Dickins
Tuesday, March 3rd @ 7:30 p.m.
Window (re/production | re/presentation) is pleased to partner with The Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center in presenting an artist talk and {Pre}HAPPENING with McLean Fahnestock and her collaborator Michael Dickins. The talk will take place at the newly re-opened BMCM+AC space at 56 Broadway in downtown Asheville and will focus on Fahnestock’s on-going project related to her site-specific piece currently on view at Window, Hidden Hall of Pacific Bird Life: Fiji (from The Fahnestock Expedition). Fahnestock will relate this work to an upcoming audio-visual work currently in production for {Re}HAPPENING 2015 in collaboration with artist Michael Dickins, who will also be present.

Fahnestock’s work in Window is comprised of a scanned image sourced from the Ornithology Archive Room at The American Museum of Natural History in New York, where Fahnestock engaged in research around her grandfather and great uncle’s involvement in scientific expeditions during the 1930’s and 1940’s. The photographic document depicts a portion of one of the four dioramas attributed to their journeys throughout the South Pacific. Fahnestock’s work seeks to “[reclaim] information from the media and history [and] re-present it in a way that leads us to address the truth of a situation versus the myth that has been perpetuated.” Read More >>
