Landscape Architecture Professor Rebecca Krinke Presents at AAG


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.

You can read more about the network's upcoming projects on their website, and in an October 2011 article from Design Observer.

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.
