Amy Franceschini is the founder of Futurefarmers, an international group of artists, activists, farmers and architects with a common interest in creating frameworks of participation that recalibrate our cultural compass. Their work uses various media to enact situations that disassemble habitual apparatus. Through public art, architecture, museum installations, publications and temporary educational programs inside institutions, they have transformed public policy, urban planning, educational curricula and public transportation plans. Futurefarmers’ make relational objects that invite audiences to gain insight into deeper fields of inquiry- not only to imagine, but also to participate in and initiate change in the places we live.
Amy was the lead artist of Flatbread Society, a permanent public artwork in Oslo, Norway and, Seed Journey, 2016-17, a floating school moving ‘farmers grains’ by sail between Oslo and Istanbul.
Amy’s work has been exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Whitney Biennial in New York, MOMA, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Canadian Center for Architecture in Montreal, the 2014 Venice Architectural Biennale, the 2017 Sharjah Biennale, the 2018 Taipei Biennale and she is the recipient of a 2010 Guggenheim Fellowship, 2017 Herb Alpert Award for Visual Arts and a 2019 Rome Prize Fellow in Design.
