Hughen/Starkweather: Adapt, Retreat, Defend, Abandon will be on view at Electric Works at Minnesota Street Project Sept 6–30, 2017. Opening reception: Saturday, September 9, 6–9 pm. Gallery hours: Weds–Sat, 11 am–6 pm, and by appointment.
In their ongoing project Shifting Shorelines, Hughen/Starkweather investigate areas where land meets water, and the complex human, environmental, and historical factors that shape these places. Similar to early cartographers, dependent on inconsistent tools and word-of-mouth information, the artists follow a sometimes meandering trail of data, images, maps, and oral histories. The resulting drawings and paintings reinterpret the complex narratives of landscape, creating new and unexpected forms through which to view a place, its history, and its possible futures.
