> DESCRIPTION

The Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University is pleased to present Your Shell is made of Air. The guiding focus of this survey is the shifting idea of how urban space is perceived. Spanning the period from the late 1960’s until today, these conceptions range from political and utopian approaches, to performative interventions and visions of imagined cities.

City space is a manifestation of human life, like a cast that forms in response to human behavior and desire. The shapes of the city, the buildings, streets, squares, shopping malls and residential areas, are the habitat within which we perform our moves, physically and intellectually.

When every environment is only as rich as the actions it allows for, it is a matter of investigating these places for possibilities and applications that are not originally inherent to them. It is the search for these air pockets that brings the artists in the show together. Deviating from this commonality, the searches touch upon ideas of the city as a playground, a sociopolitical laboratory, a psychological dérive, and the exploration of future urban systems in sci-fi cinema.

An artist reception will be held on Sunday February 23, 2014 from 4-8pm, coinciding with the release of the exhibition catalog designed by U&I Design, and featuring essays by Jan Tumlir, Amy Howden Chapman and Marcus Herse.
