Located on the beautiful ASU West campus, the ArtSpace West Gallery has several gallery installations throughout the year. Located on the north side of University Center Building we look forward to seeing you soon.
Our first installation in ArtSpace West for the new 22-23 season is created by Interdisciplinary Arts and Performance faculty alejandro t. acierto and opens with a reception on Wednesday, October 5 @ 7 pm. Strategies for the evasion of capture uses photographs, video, sculpture, and performance to look, metaphorically and actually, at pugos, a unique low-flying bird from the Philippines that consistently remain obscure from photographic capture. Their elusive nature poetically opens the possibility of other realities, of other existences, or of different ways of being that are not reliant on colonial contact. This installation draws from archival television news footage, interviews with prominent zoologists, and historical ephemera in an exhibition that gestures to contemporary discourses around visibility and the tensions embedded in surveillance cultures.
This installation runs Oct. 6–27, Mondays–Thursdays, noon–5 p.m.
