Psychogeography explores artists’ responses to place [and displacement] in real and imagined spaces. From the psychic to the specific, from recollection to recording, the works in this exhibit recreate the power of place in the human imagination.
The nine artists in this group exhibition have traversed the globe, from the North Pole to Egypt, from Tibet to Italy, and from Flatbush to Central Park. Some travel in the imaginative realms, others may never leave the studio.
This exhibit takes inspiration from the notion of derive, or “drifting,” a word coined by French Marxist philosopher Guy Debord, one of the founders of the Situationists International movement.
