Trevor Paglen

Trevor Paglen is an artist, writer, and experimental geographer. He holds a BA from UC Berkeley, an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a PhD in Geography from UC Berkeley. His practice deliberately blurs the lines between science, contemporary art, journalism to construct unfamiliar, yet meticulously researched ways to see and interpret the world around us. His work is centred on making visible the invisible infrastructures of the military and intelligence services. He has made photoseries and published articles and books on secret military bases, test-sites and CIA prisons. So-called ‘black sites’ that are deliberately kept out of sight from public view.

Paglen’s visual work has been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Tate Modern, London; The Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis; The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh; Institute for Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art and numerous international biennials.

His art and writing have appeared in major publications including The New York Times, Wired, Vanity Fair, Newsweek, Modern Painters, Aperture, and Artforum.
