RAW: GEOGRAPHIES will present 3 weeks, 6 earthworks, 1 portable studio and ALL that lies in between, a set of photographs, sculptural objects, books, and video created by Jacinda Russell and Nancy Douthey. 3 weeks, 6 earthworks, 1 portable studio and ALL that lies in between is the record of performances made in response to six famous earthworks during the course of a three week road trip across the American West. Using humor, performativity, and a feminist lens, Russell and Douthey question the inaccessibility of such works as Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty; Nancy Holt's Sun Tunnels; and James Turrell's Roden Crater. Bas well as the predominately masculine discourses within the Earthworks movement. Photographs and other artifacts from this journey will be on display in the Reed College Library throughout the festival.
