Organized and circulated by ICI (Independent Curators International), the exhibition Experimental Geography explores the distinctions between the field of Geography and current artistic practices, as well as where they intersect. Curated by Nato Thompson (Creative Time, New York), the exhibition presents a view of this new mode of art making through a survey of works across a variety of mediums, notably the interactive screen, video and sound installation, photography, sculpture and experimental cartography.
