Julianne Swartz and Ken Landauer spent their Social Studies residency at the ASU Art Museum looking for miracles. The artists explored the miraculous through people’s perceptions of it in their lives, interviewing students, school children and community members of all ages and backgrounds. They combined their findings in an installation of fleeting vignettes playing on all of the available sound and video equipment in the museum’s possession. In the words of the artists, “Our installation will strive to embody some beauty, some hocus-pocus and some unexplainable magic.”
Miracle Report was originally realized at the Arizona State University Art Museum and supported by a grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts as part of the Social Studies series. This project was initiated by John D. Spiak. Upon Spiak’s departure to accept his new position at Grand Central Art Center; Heather Sealy Lineberry with Nicole Herden curated the exhibition at ASU Art Museum.
