The Foundation, in partnership with the University of New Mexico (UNM) Art Museum, presents John Gerrard: Animated Scene, a lecture event from March 1, 2017, at UNM in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In his lecture, artist John Gerrard presents live simulations of several works, including “Solar Reserve (Tonopah, Nevada) 2014,” an acclaimed artist-designed LED wall installation, supported by the Thoma Foundation and the Public Art Fund, at Lincoln Center, New York. This event was free and open to the public.

The artist is best known for his commitment to large-scale works that take the form of real-time computer simulations, created in painstaking detail over the course of many months or years. Often exploring geographically isolated locations, as in his work for the 53rd Venice Biennale that featured large-scale projections based on documentation of the agrarian American Great Plains, the works frequently refer to structures of power and networks of energy that have made possible the expansion of human endeavor in the past century.

Gerrard’s “Oil Stick Work (Angelo Martinez, Richfield, Kansas), 2008,” is currently on view at Art House as part of the “Mouse in the Machine” exhibition (closing April 31, 2017).
