Relevance of Place: Shannon Jackson in Conversation with Lindsey Hinmon

Relevance of Place is an online series of site-specific dialogues that explore the meaning of place at Tippet Rise Art Center. Located in Fishtail, Montana, Tippet Rise is anchored in the belief that art, music, architecture, and nature are intrinsic to the human experience, each making the others more powerful.

Guided by Shannon Jackson, Chair of the History of Art Department at UC-Berkeley and a scholar of socially-engaged art, Relevance of Place invites artists, architects, designers, and creative thinkers to engage in conversation about the ethics, aesthetics, and relevance of place. These conversations explore “place” as a global, local, and personal concept as well as “place” as it refers specifically to Tippet Rise. In individual interviews and group dialogues, each guest offers stories and insights from their own practice. Together, they reflect on the historic past and sustainable future of Tippet Rise—as an environmental site, as a wide-ranging art center, and as a creative gathering space.

Here, Shannon Jackson interviews Tippet Rise co-director Lindsey Hinmon about the unique sense of presence created at Tippet Rise as well its range of aesthetic, educational, and community experiences. In this episode, Hinmon recounts emblematic moments of synergy amongst art, nature, and people while also recalling key considerations that went into building structures and programming for the center. Watch to hear her introduce the many programs of Tippet Rise and share her personal reflections.

Filmed in May 2023.
