The core of our mission at LAND came in part from my experience working on the 2008 Whitney Biennial (with Henriette Huldisch, who is now the Senior Curator at the List Visual Arts Center at M.I.T.). Many of the artists we wanted to include worked in what we were then calling “expanded practice,” where all different types of artwork were equally important to them within the scope of their work. It just needed something other than a white cube, which didn’t function as well in the museum, so we took over the Park Avenue Armory. It was a dramatic part of that Biennial, and it led in large part to thinking about the LAND model for me.
