Telfair Museums will presentÂ Your Land/My Land â€™12 to coincide with the 2012 American presidential election season. The exhibition will be staged simultaneously at art museums across the US.
Your Land/My Land is a reimagined installation originally presented by Jonathan Horowitz during the 2008 presidential election. At each location (as in â€™08), red and blue area rugs will divide the exhibition space into opposing zones, reflecting Americaâ€™s color-coded, political, and cultural divide. Back-to-back monitors will be suspended between the carpets, with one broadcasting a live feed of Fox News, the other of CNN. The installation will provide a location for people to gather and watch coverage of as well as talk about the presidential election. Its central trope is a divided United States swathed in only red and blue.
