Amy Franceschini, Fall/Winter 2011
Amy Franceschini is an artist and educator who uses various media to encourage
formats of exchange and production, many times in collaboration with other
practitioners. An overarching theme in her work is a perceived conflict between
humans and nature. Her projects reveal the history and currents of contradictions
related to this divide by collectively challenging systems of exchange and the tools
we use to â€œhuntâ€ and â€œgather." Using this as a starting point, she often provides
a playful entry point for an audience to gain insight into deeper fields of inquiryâ€”not
only to imagine, but to participate in and initiate change in the places we live.
Amy founded the artists collective and design studio Futurefarmers in 1995, and
co-founded Free Soil, an international artist collective in 2004. Futurefarmersâ€™ design
studio serves as a platform to support art projects, an artist-in-residency program
and research interests. She is currently searching for land to house Futurefarmers
and create a permanent agricultural land trust.
