Talk

WED, FEB 20

6PM

 

Establishing a plant-animal-people trilogy with the Edible Estates (est. 2005) series of front yard food gardens and the Animal Estates (est. 2008) initiatives for urban wildlife architecture, Domestic Integrities (est. 2012) turns its attention inward to local patterns and rituals of interior domestic landscapes and the way we use what we resourcefully find around us to artfully make ourselves at home. “Domestic Integrity Fields” are charged sites—on crocheted rugs of discarded textiles—to  test, perform, and present how we want to live. One rug in each continent gradually expands as it travels from city to city. In the United States, the series began during fall 2012 at the Museum of Modern Art and the new Broad Museum of Art at Michigan State University, followed by The Hammer Museum of Art in spring 2013, the deCordova Museum in the summer, and at the Walker Art Center in the fall. In Europe the project is taking place at Pollinaria in Abruzzo, Italy in 2012-2013.

 

In 2012, Haeg received a Graham Foundation grant for Edible Estate #12: Budapest, Hungary, produced with Blood Mountain Foundation. More about the project here.

 

On February 19, Haeg will speak at Architecture is Activism…FOOD!, a panel discussion hosted by the Chicago Architecture Foundation and supported by a grant from the Graham Foundation. More about the project here.

 

Fritz Haeg's work has included edible gardens, public dances, educational environments, animal architecture, domestic gatherings, urban parades, temporary encampments, documentary videos, publications, exhibitions, websites, and occasionally buildings for people. Recent projects include Sundown Schoolhouse,  an itinerant educational program; Edible Estates, an international series of domestic edible landscapes; and Animal Estates, a housing initiative for native animals in cities around the world which debuted at the 2008 Whitney Biennial. Haeg is a 2010-2011 Rome Prize Fellow and has taught in architecture, design, and fine art programs at Princeton University, Cal Arts, Art Center College of Design, Parsons School of Design, and the University of Southern California. Haeg has produced projects and exhibited work at MoMA; Tate Modern; the Hayward Gallery; the Liverpool Biennial; the Whitney Museum of American Art; SFMoMA; SALT Beyoglu, Istanbul; Casco, Utrecht; Stroom, Den Haag; Arup Phase 2, London; Blood Mountain Foundation, Budapest; The Indianapolis Museum of Art; Mass MoCA; The Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; among others. Recent books include The Sundown Salon Unfolding Archive (Evil Twin Publications, 2009), Edible Estates: Attack on the Front Lawn (Metropolis Books, 2nd ed., 2010), and Roma Mangia Roma (Nero, expected Spring 2013).
