Founded by Chip Lord and Doug Michels, and soon joined by Hudson Marquez and Curtis Schreier, Ant Farm worked the radical fringe of architecture and art from 1968 to 1978. The Ant Farm Archive is in the collection of the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, where the first retrospective exhibition was held in 2004. Other exhibitions were at the FRAC Centre, Orleans, France, 2007 and the Gallery of the GSAPP at Columbia University, 2008. A second archival collection is in the Avery Library of Architecture and Fine art at Columbia Universtiy. Included is a significant mail art collection - the correspondence between Chip Lord and Doug Michels, 1967 - 2003. Follow Ant Farm 1968 - 1978 on Facebook for the most up-to-date news.
