Orbital Reflector in College Art Association Reviews

Art History Professor Brett M. Van Hoesen reviewed Orbital Reflector in the College Art Association Reviews. Alum Trevor Paglen's Orbital Reflector was on display at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno. NMA coproduced the Orbital Reflector and also hosted a recent exhibition of the project in its Center for Art + Environment gallery from 2016 to 2019.

From the review:

With all the press coverage of the launch, the museum’s Center for Art + Environment exhibition Trevor Paglen: Orbital Reflector was largely overshadowed. But the exhibition provided an important context for the project, including fifteen prototype drawings (2012–17) by the artist. Paglen, who received his MFA from the Art Institute of Chicago and PhD in geography from UC Berkeley, first experimented with an aerospace project in 2012.
