The Road Less Traveled Conference

Scholars, artists, preservationists, educators, activists, art historians, collectors and devotees will delve into the complex subject of artist-built environments during a three-day conference, September 27-29, 2017, at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, WI.

Through a variety of performances, panels, and workshops, attendees will share new ideas and broaden the collective knowledge and appreciation of this unique style of art making that is the focus of a yearlong series of exhibitions at the Arts Center.

Please email conference@jmkac.org with any questions regarding this conference.

Featuring luminaries from the field (51 speakers in all) as well as emerging creative professionals, this dynamic conference spans disciplines and perspectives relevant to the understanding of environments both in-situ and no longer in place. Topics will include the curation of site components, current research and conservation methods, artists’ responses to various sites, issues in community engagement and historic designation, and site stewardship.

Among the highlights are a live podcast from Benjamen Walker’s Theory of Everything reflecting on a road trip to artist-built sites in Wisconsin, artist Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe’s performance of a sound piece specific to Emery Blagdon’s Healing Machine, and a think tank discussion of the future of Eddie Owens Martin’s magnificent site, Pasaquan, now that conservation of the artist environment is complete.
