Beyond Field: A Guide Through Practice and Discipline
Curated By: Jenny Yurshansky
This animate field guide leads you through the wild and woolly frontiers of the art world where the featured artists and cultural practitioners investigate, utilize, and integrate strategies, research, and topics that lie beyond traditional art practice. These intrepid souls will navigate as we traverse the territories of tactical magic, island nation overlords, penitentiaries, miniature models, chimerical remains, and weirdo think tanks! Please take a seat and join us on the adventure.

I spent a great deal of time as a child - perhaps too much time - in the Museum of Natural History in my hometown of Denver. The original draw of that institution for me was its exquisite dioramas. Those finite yet infinite environments were a never-ending appeal that attracted me like nothing else - until, that is, I discovered the miniature dioramas. I spent hours absorbing every minute detail of those miniature worlds and remember then thinking to myself "what if they were even smaller?"
