The Clark – Virginia Burrus, ‘Curating Earthquakes’

Clark Fellow Virginia Burrus presents, “Curating Earthquakes: Between Ballroom Marfa’s ‘Hyperobjects’ (2018) and Jerome’s Life of St. Hilarion (390).” This lecture explores the relation between memory and place, shuttling between Marfa, Texas, and Paphos, Cyprus, a contemporary exhibition and a fourth-century literary work. Earthquakes, and larger dynamics of destruction and resilience, provide a particular point of convergence, as the lecture engages both memory and place in their intimately material and more-than-human dimensions.
