Rebecca Krinke (Landscape Architecture) received an Association of American Geographers (AAG) Enhancement Grant to discuss her recent work in the 'Art and Geography' session 'Mappings I: Haunted Landscapes and Acts of Viewing' during the AAG conference in New York City, February 24-28. AAG is a nonprofit scientific and educational society that contributes to the advancement of geography.
Along with teaching for the Department of Landscape Architecture, Krinke is a multimedia artist, who works in sculpture, installations, and site art. In 2011 she helped launch the new Mapping Spectral Traces website, an academic-artist trans-disciplinary collaborative of international scholars, practitioners, community leaders and artists who are working with and in traumatized communities, contested lands and diverse environments.
The Mapping Spectral Traces network is holding a symposium at the University of Minnesota in October 2012 with exhibitions at the Katherine Nash Gallery, Form+Content Gallery, and All My Relations Gallery (Minneapolis); performances; related classes and seminars; and Native American hosting events.
