Land and space are implicated in everything we do, in every action we take, every decision we make and every crisis we weather. Moreover, when either human beings or the environment changes; the other does as well. These changes now occur on a scale and at a pace never seen before, thanks to the proliferation of military conflict and the dizzying pace of urbanization, industrialization and globalization. The artists in Nobody’s Property are responding with equal parts poetry and insight.
Nobody’s Property will be accompanied by a 150-page, fully illustrated catalogue. With contributions by exhibition curator, Kelly Baum, as well as nine established and emerging scholars, the catalogue will include important new research on both contemporary and historical land art. To purchase a copy, please call the Museum store: (609) 258-1713.

Two programs have been organized in conjunction with the exhibition. On Tuesday, October 26, at 4:30, independent scholar Juliana Ochs and Princeton scholar Daniel Heller-Roazen, author of The Enemy of All: Piracy and the Law of Nations, will join artists Jennifer Allora, Guillermo Calzadilla, Emre Hüner and Matthew Day Jackson for a lively discussion moderated by Kelly Baum.

On Tuesday, November 16, at 4:30, artist Lucy Raven will screen her film China Town. The screening will be followed by a Q + A with artist and writer Keith Sanborn. Please visit the Museum’s website for more information:
