The manifestations of "experimental geography" (a term coined by geographer and artist Trevor Paglen in 2002) run the gamut of contemporary art practice today: sewn cloth cities that spill out of suitcases, bus tours through water-treatment centers, performers climbing up the sides of buildings. In the hands of contemporary artists, the study of humanity's engagement with the earth's surface becomes a riddle best solved in experimental fashion. The exhibition presents a panoptic view of this new practice through a wide range of mediums including sound and video installations, photography, suulpture, and experimental cartography.

Experimental Geography is curated by Nato Thompson, curator and producer at Creative Time in New York, and is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue with texts by Thompson, Jeffrey Kastner, Trevor Paglen, and others.

Volunteers are needed for this event!

Volunteers will serve as gallery attendants providing security in the galleries, greeting guests, and assisting with projects during special events and during regular open hours.
