Day 274: Experimental Geography

from Experimental Geography

As part of Generative Conversations, smudge studio will be live-blogging from the New Museum today at 3 p.m. We welcome you to join us! You can read our real time or archived summaries of the panel discussion and participate while it's happening by sending us comments or questions if you wish.

Decription of the event:
"Creative Time curator Nato Thompson will lead a discussion on Experimental Geography with Lize Mogel and Damon Rich, two artists who participated in his exhibition (for Independent Curators International) and book (Melville House) of the same name. The discussion will focus on the creative use of landscape hacking, cartography, locative media, and radical urbanism as a means of engaging with the politics of contested spaces. In presenting work from the show and book, the panelists will explore the distinctions between geographical study and artistic experience of the earth, and the juncture where the two realms collide."
