FILM: THROUGH THE REPELLENT FENCE
What began as a documentary on the “land art” movement in the US soon evolved to focus on Repellent Fence—a temporary, two-mile-long art installation that intersected the US/Mexico border in October 2015, spearheaded by Postcommodity, an activist/art collective consisting of three Native American artists. The artists “put land art in a tribal context” in “a metaphorical suture stitching together cultures that have inhabited these lands long before borders were drawn.” The story of this timely work is intercut with scenes from major land art works like Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty and Nancy Holt’s The Sun Tunnels.
Through the Repellent Fence will be screened collaboratively by the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art and the Mint Museum Sunday, March 4 at 2 p.m. at the Mint Museum Uptown. Doors open at 1 p.m. along with a cash bar. Admission is free, RSVP here. Director Sam Wainright Douglas will be on hand to speak with the audience post-screening.
