The Soil is Sentient: An Ar(t)chaeological Exhibit

February 21, 2020
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Low Memorial Library Rotunda, Columbia University, 535 West 116th Street, New York

Event Description: 

In the 2019 fall semester, Jeffrey Benjamin (Anthropology) taught the course “Principles of Art in Archaeological Practice.” This show, mounted in Low Library Rotunda in January 2020, is the culmination of a semester’s work by students in the course. Its title — “The soil is sentient” — is a phrase from a final paper by student Mira Baum. A few visiting artists have gracefully lent work to complement the work of the students; Ben Kinmont, Marko Marila, Tim Flohr Sørensen, Suvi Tuominen. The show is on view until 2021.
