Lecture: Trevor Paglen
March 22, 2013
Friday, March 22, 2013, 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Artist Trevor Paglen will discuss his most recent ground-breaking project, The Last Pictures. Paglen is an artist, writer, and experimental geographer whose work deliberately blurs lines between social science, contemporary art, journalism, and other disciplines to construct unfamiliar, yet meticulously researched ways to see and interpret the world around us. His most recent project is The Last Pictures, a project presented by Creative Time, which is a collection of 100 images to be placed on permanent media and launched into space on EchoStar XVI, as a repository available for future civilizations (alien or human) to find. One of the images selected is by Ansel Adams from UCR ARTSblock's California Museum of Photography's permanent collection.
The exhibition, "Free Enterprise: The Art of Citizen Space Exploration," will be open prior to Trevor Paglen's lecture on Friday, March 22, 7:30 PM.
