“What we were trying to do was the ultimate form of architecture, which was predicting how society would use space, land and time.”
Curtis Schreier, ANT FARM

Space, Land and Time: Underground Adventures with Ant Farm is the first film to consider the work of the 1970s architecture collective Ant Farm, best known for its iconic land-art piece Cadillac Ranch. Radical architects, video pioneers, and mordantly funny cultural commentators, the Ant Farmers created a body of deeply subversive work that questioned the boundaries of architecture and predicted many of the ideas and technologies we take for granted today. Incorporating breathtaking archival video, new footage shot over ten years and animation based on zany period sketches, this film is about the joy of creation in a time when there were no limits.

This screening is presented in collaboration with American Association of Museums Conference and in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts Houston with special thanks to Discovery Green Park for their support.
