Interdisciplinary artist Jonas Becker explores the intersection of land, identity, and politics. His recent projects reflect on extraction as a metaphor for broader socioeconomic issues. In this work in progress, Becker builds on such land-based metaphors to engage participants in a multi-sensory exploration of the “new normal.”

In Progress is a series designed to give patrons a look into the process of artists, thinkers, and curators organized by Curator of Public Programs January Parkos Arnall and Assistant Curator of Public Programs Christy LeMaster.
