Alum Trevor Paglen Now Showing at PACE

In early March, BCNM alum Trevor Paglen joined PACE Gallery in representing Paglen and his work.

From PACE Gallery:

Marc Glimcher, CEO of Pace, today announced that New York and Berlin-based American artist Trevor Paglen has joined the gallery’s roster of leading international contemporary artists. Pace will work in cooperation with Paglen’s American galleries, Metro Pictures, New York, and Altman Siegel, San Francisco, together offering a comprehensive global network through which to maximize exhibition opportunities and exposure for Paglen’s work.

Paglen’s multi-faceted practice examines themes such as technology, power, and politics, through an approach that incorporates methods from investigative journalism, engineering, and critical geography. His previous projects have involved in-depth inquiries into cloud computing and artificial intelligence platforms, global surveillance systems, clandestine military sites, the politics of outer space, and the consequences of climate change. Paglen defines his motivation as attempting to define “how we can learn to ‘see’ the historical moment we live in.” In pursuit of this, Paglen invokes traditions of abstraction, conceptual art, and minimalism in a practice centered around sculpture, video, photography, and installation.
