Geography benefits from the study of specific histories, sites and memory. Every estuary, landfill, and cul-de-sac has a story to tell. The task of the geography is to alert us to what is directly in front of us, while the task for the experimental geographer—an amalgam of scientist, artist and explorer—is to do so in a manner that deploys aesthetics, ambiguity, poetry, and a dash of empiricism. This exhibition explores the distinctions between geographical study and artistic experience of the earth, as well as the juncture where the two realms collide (and possibly make a new field altogether). This group exhibition featuring works by 19 international artists, is organized and circulated by International Curators Incorporate, New York.
