CLUI : A SURVEY.
INTERPRETING THE US LANDSCAPES FOR MORE THAN 25 YEARS
Wednesday 5th of February , 19h
Happy to host our sister-(para)-institution. On Wednesday and for a month, we have the opportunity to get to know the work carried by CLUI , introduced by one of its agents on the field. This survey presents diverse materials that examine the contemporary landscape of the USA as cultural product. The Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI) is a non-profit research organization, founded in 1994, involved in exploring and understanding land and landscape issues. The organization produces exhibitions about land use phenomenology in the USA, and displays them at its exhibit locations and at other museum and non-commercial and educational venues as well. The CLUI produces publications, online resources, tours, lectures, and other public programs across the country.
