Artist Chip Lord of the art and architecture collective Ant Farm will discuss his project Cadillac Ranch, for the upcoming 50th-year anniversary of the seminal public art installation.

Chip Lord is an artist who works with video and photography. As a member of Ant Farm [1968-1978] he produced the video art classics Media Burn and The Eternal Frame as well as the Cadillac Ranch sculpture in Amarillo, Texas. Since 1980 he has worked independently and in collaboration producing video installations and single-channel videotapes. His media work straddles documentary and experimental genres, often mixing the two, and has been shown widely at film and video festivals and in Museums. In 2005 a survey of his video work was shown at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arts Reina Sofia in Madrid, Spain. His photo project Movie Map was shown at the Rena Bransten Gallery in 2003 and in the group exhibition, AUTO.SUEÑO Y MATERIA in Gijon and Madrid, Spain, 2009. In partnership with Bruce Tomb and Curtis Schreier he created Ant Farm Media Van v.08 [Time Capsule], for the exhibition “The Art of Participation from 1950 until Now” for SFMOMA, 2008. In 2010 he completed a public video art piece, titled To & From LAX, for the remodeled Bradley Terminal at LAX Airport. A related single-channel video, IN TRANSIT, was completed, 2011. He is a Professor Emeritus in the Film and Digital Media Department at U.C. Santa Cruz, and he lives in San Francisco.
