Arcadia uncovers some unpleasant truths about idealized pastoral landscapeS


Director: Rick Fisher

When not working at a full time job at Video Pool artist-run centre in Canada, helping to raise his young children or re- searching genocide, Winnipeg based artist Rick Fisher makes videos over extended periods of time with fellow prairie artist Don Rice. After undergraduate art school, Rick worked underground in a mine for ten years. He was then accepted into gra- duate school where he was expelled and named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a $103 million lawsuit for conspiracy to destroy one of America’s largest private art schools. He subsequently worked at media arts artist-run centers on the Canadian prairies for twenty years.
