CLUI Out and About


SOMETIMES THE CENTER produces specialized exhibits for museums or other noncommercial display venues, or provides existing programs or content for use in thematic, curated exhibitions produced by other institutions. Over the last year, CLUI material was included in a number of exhibitions in the USA, from the urban (at Temple University, in Philadelphia), to the rural (at the Granary Art Center, in Ephraim, Utah).

Further afield, CLUI content was shown at the Kunsthaus Graz, in Graz, Austria, where CLUI programs were featured as part of the exhibit Landscapes in Motion: Filmic Perspectives on an Uncertain Tomorrow; at the Nottingham Contemporary, in Nottingham, England, as part of Rights of Nature: Art and Ecology in the Americas; and at the Cultural Centre of European Space Technologies in Vitanje, Slovenia, part of an exhibition called Icons of the Non-Visible.

Representatives of the CLUI were invited (and able) to speak at more than a dozen conferences and university engagements over the last year, including at the College Art Association, and Cooper Union, New York City; the University of Wyoming; Washington University, St. Louis; Maryland Institute College of Art, in Baltimore; Utah State, in Logan, Utah; University of New Mexico, Albuquerque; TAAK, in Marfa, Texas; in California at UC Irvine’s Desert Studies Center at Borrego Springs, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, UCLA, UCSD, USC, and Art Center College of Design; in Nevada at UNLV, Las Vegas, and Sierra Nevada College; and at a land arts conference in the Netherlands.

People also come to usover the last year a few dozen classes from art, architecture, and design schools visited the CLUI’s space in Los Angeles, or our complex in Wendover, Utah, or the Desert Research Station, in Hinkley, California. The CLUI was also featured in more than a dozen interviews and reviews, in publications online and in print. ♦
