Special Exhibition Program: Steve Rowell
Incorporating excerpts from his films as well as Deep Weather by Ursula Biemann, along with references to the work of Pierre Huyghe, and Subhankar Banerjee, special exhibition artist Steve Rowell will speak about how artists employ the notion of the uncanny as a response to climate change and expression of ecological grief. Rowell will highlight examples from Midstream at Twilight, his contribution to Indicators: Artists on Climate Change as well as two works-in-progress: Uncanny Sensing, Remote Valleys, a five-year project funded by Creative Capital, and Humans Lived Here Once, his thesis film from the University of Oxford.

Steve Rowell is a research-based artist who works with photography and moving image, sound, installation, maps, and spatial concepts. He has lived in Los Angeles, Oxford, Berlin, Chicago, and Washington DC over the past 20 years. His transdisciplinary practice focuses on overlapping aspects of technology, perception, and culture as related to the ontology of landscape. Rowell contextualizes the morphology of the built environment with the surrounding medium of Nature; appropriating the methods and tools of the geographer and archaeologist.
