01 Jun Platform Gallery’s Micro-Topologies Exhibit
Opening Reception: Wednesday, June 1, 2011 / 5:00 – 7:00 PM
On View: June 1 – September 15, 2011
Introductory Lecture by Tomaz Andrade (Physic, UCSB)
McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB
Where Platform’s previous shows Snarled Megalopolis and Suburbia explored geographies of large cities and suburbs, Micro-Topologies investigates the complexities of human-land relationships and natural-human phenomena envisioned in “local” contexts. The exhibit features artworks that reveal, examine and (re)interpret activities, environments, movements and communities on a small scale. It focuses on specific sites, interpreting “micro” as literally microscopic or hyper-local.
The Platform Gallery is a program of the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center and features a curated collection of prints and time-based media from an international body of artists. Micro-topologies will be the final in a series of three shows that explored artistic interpretations of the IHC’s Geographies of Place theme.

Refreshments will be served.
