Covenant: Film and Panel Discussion
with filmmaker and artist Michael Mercil, Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio
Thursday, February 7, 2013 7:00pm
An extension of Michael Mercil’s 2008-2011 Wexner Center installation, The Virtual Pasture, Covenant reflects on the economy of keeping livestock. The Virtual Pasture—previously located on a plot of land just outside the Wexner Center—explored both the history of The Ohio State University as an agricultural college and the place of farm animals in contemporary life. Covenant goes one step further, culminating and broadening the project to call our attention to the rewards, challenges, and anxieties of the human to farm animal bond.
Following the premiere, there will be a panel discussion organized by the Department of Art Living Culture Initiative and cosponsored by the Humanities Institute.

Headlands Center for the Arts * May 20, 2012 4:30pm, Dinner 6:30pm
Artists Rachel Mayeri and Laurel Braitman (AFF ’11) discuss human perceptions of animals, and animals’ perceptions of themselves and other species. Mayeri will screen her multi-stage project,Primate Cinema, in which a video of humans emulating ape behavior is shown to a group of chimpanzees at the Edinburgh Zoo; Braitman will share aspects of her research on the history of mental illness in other animals (from dolphins to dogs), and what it means to be human– the subject of her forthcoming book Animal Madness. Continue the discussion with us over dinner in the Mess Hall.
