Roving Buffalo July 2016

In consideration of the urgency to make sense of the unstable and dangerous times we are living through and against, the Roving Buffalo contemplates the capacity of art to clarify vision and recollect our mission as artists.
“The power of art is unlimited, it is absolutely unlimited and transcendent. Because it can do what no institution, no structure can do. It’s purpose is to go beyond structure, to question institutions, to change them . Thats what it does and thats what defines what an artwork is. So the power of artwork is unlimited for social change.”

I don’t think about art when I’m working. I try to think about life.
