With “Inter-Glacial Free Trade Agency,” Lynn Richardson examines the relationship between governments and corporations through the guise of a trade show. Richardson focuses on the end products being marketed to the public, specifically fashionable survival gear and equipment, in the event we are thrust back into an ice age as a result of global warming. Objects and other items are branded with the same logo, convincing the viewer that in the “new world” there is only one choice. For more information visit or contact
