Issue 10


Xavier Cortada planted a bunch of mangrove seedlings around Miami for Art Basel Miami Beach back in December; then he went to the opposite ends of the earth to plant flags (and a seedling replica) on a moving glacier in Antarctica. As part of the National Science Foundation artists’ program, he created other installations as well, such as The Markers (below), which marks the passage of time by exploring important events of the past 50 years, and worked on collaborative projects with scientists living on the South Pole. The documentation of all of this makes up this show, which will then travel to Oslo, Norway. March 10 through May 5.
