Jessica Labatte

Jessica Labatte, Untitled (Gradient Ribbon)

I’m arriving late to the work of Jessica Labatte, but her Solo Show on the Humble website is pretty wild and amazing.

The line between reality & illusion as well as the investigation between two-dimensional and three-dimensional space is endlessly fun to think about and of course the photographs are beautiful which always helps.

There is also a posted interview with Jessica conducted by Jon Feinstein.

Experimental Geography

July 13, 2010

Trevor Paglen, VORTEX 3 in Sextans (Inactive Signals Intelligence Spacecraft), 2010

This could be an interesting panel discussion:

Experimental Geography gathers artists whose work not only explores the earth’s surface, but also provide points of departure that exceed the strict terrain of art. Ranging from the deeply poetic to the strictly empirical, these works toy with the complicated mixture of aesthetic poetry, geographic materiality and empirical fact. This panel discussion features Experimental Geography exhibition curator Nato Thompson, artists Lize Mogel and Trevor Paglen, and David Harvey, social theorist and Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at the Graduate Center, CUNY.”

Experimental Geography Panel Discussion
7.20.2010
6:00 – 7:15 PM
The Graduate Center at CUNY
