THE POSTCONTEMPORARY OPEN FIELD






This experimental work constitutes a chapter of the book 'Imaginations, Interiors, Surfaces' edited by Elizabeth Hodson. The book is part of Tim Ingold's 'Knowing from the Inside' research project at University of Aberdeen. In this collaboration, Ícaro Lira and I suggest possible interstices of artistic and anthropological research in an open-ended manner, signalling the lack of narrative that will characterise these moments in flux.

Alex Ungprateeb Flynn is an Assistant Professor at the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance, University of California, Los Angeles. Working as an anthropologist and curator, Alex’s practice explores the intersection of ethnographic and curatorial modes of enquiry. Researching collaboratively with activists, curators and artists in Brazil since 2007, Alex explores the prefigurative potential of art in community contexts, prompting the theorisation of fields such as the production of knowledge, the pluriversal, and the social and aesthetic dimensions of form.
