Cropping to Circles: Kendal McMinimy


  • Great Plains Art Museum 1155 Q Street, P.O. Box 880214 Lincoln, NE 68588-0214 (map)

 

McMinimy fuses photography and printmaking in abstracted renderings of irrigation systems. The artist draws attention to agricultural water use through images that explore the nature of center pivot irrigation as “a system that encircles multiple conflicting truths — a worldwide revolution in food production is also complicit in the depletion of groundwater; humanitarian aid aligns with hegemonic order; global market forces allow and deny local economies; a system simultaneously produces and diminishes.”
