Description

Advancing the culture of art and science on a remote island in Lake Superior.

The Rabbit Island Foundation provides a platform to investigate, expand and challenge creative practices in a remote environment through the Rabbit Island Residency. By living and working on Rabbit Island—a 91 acre wilderness located in the largest freshwater lake in the world, Lake Superior—residents engage directly with the landscape and respond to notions of conservation, ecology, sustainability, and resilience. With the idea that the intelligent organization and celebration of wild spaces is the most civilized thing we can value as society, the residency reflects on the continent’s four hundred year history of settlement and division of land. The island, an unsettled and undivided space, enables residents to present commentary on these ideas, creating creative interpretations and solutions to issues of global importance such as climate change and loss of natural habitat and pristine watersheds.

Outcome

Work shared to the Rabbit Island audience via online exhibition via the Rabbit Island website and Archive, contribution to the Rabbit Island Collection, and the possibility of artist talks or exhibitions with local partnering institutions.
