EXTRACTION: Art on the Edge of the Abyss

EXTRACTION: Art on the Edge of the Abyss consists of a global coalition of artists and creators united behind a commitment to shine a light on all forms of extractive industry – from mining and drilling to the commercial use of fresh water, fertile soil, timber, marine life, and innumerable resources across the globe. This exhibition is one of nearly fifty overlapping events comprised of performances, exhibits, site-specific work, publications, and poetry readings going on around the world.

This multi-media, multi-venue, cross-border, art conversation exhibit seeks to examine and respond to the consequences of industrialized natural resource extraction and is a collaboration of efforts by Ryan Parker, Sara Mast, Peter Koch, Ian van Coller, and Michele Corriel; and is a special project of the CODEX Foundation.

EXTRACTION is a small exhibit and is located in the Paugh History Hall near the 1930s House and Filling Station.
