Your Land/My Land: Election '12 (2012) is an installation by artist Jonathan Horowitz to coincide with the 2012 American presidential election season. The exhibition will be staged simultaneously at art museums across the United States. The exhibition is a reimagined installation originally presented by Horowitz during the 2008 presidential election.

At each location, red and blue area rugs will divide the exhibition space into opposing zones, reflecting America's color-coded, political and cultural divide. Back-to-back monitors will be suspended between the carpets, with one broadcasting a live feed of Fox News, the other of MSNBC. The installation will provide a location for people to gather and watch coverage of as well as talk about the presidential election.

Your Land/My Land: Election '12 (2012) opens Sept. 28. An Election Viewing Party is scheduled for Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. On view through Nov. 11.
