WNDRNG: Let's Get Lost
Nov. 11-20, Opening reception: Nov. 11, 6-9 p.m.
Main Gallery,
Main Building (1300 W. Mount Royal Ave.)

Fifteen artists of MICA's Wandering: Psychogeography class offer a collection of metamaps, podcasts, field works, weavings, soundings and poetic pathways that explore mind and body: space and place.

These works of visual and literary art are inspired by the ideas of Situationists, Guy Debord and Asger Jorn as well as contemporary philosophers, Henri LeFebvre and Edward Soja. The exhibiting artists focus on the relationships between personal identities, physical, virtual and social spaces, and the meaning-making of "place."

Wandering connotes movement and exploration, and also swerving or drifting off course. By following the errant path, one questions the "standard" path and discovers where one is in the world, where the purpose and meaning of art seem constantly adrift.

Admission is free.

Exhibition Audio

In the spirit of occupying an exploring spaces and places, the artists decided that the exhibition would best be represented by something other than the traditional catalog essay. The congitive terrain circumscribed and transected by voice, instrumentation, and acoustics is a rich one.
