Freiman’s lecture will focus on 100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park attached to the Indianapolis Museum of Art, which opened in June 2010. 100 Acres offers a new resilient model for sculpture parks in the 21st century, emphasizing experimentation, place-making, and public engagement with a constantly changing constellation of commissioned artworks. Inaugural installations included works by eight artists and artist collaboratives from around the world including Atelier Van Lieshout, Kendall Buster, Jeppe Hein, Alfredo Jaar, Los Carpinteros, Tea Mäkipää, Type A, and Andrea Zittel.
