New Terrains: Mobility and Migration
A collaborative exploration of how bodies move through social and political spaces in Silicon Valley
South Bay arts organizations band together to present a series of cross-disciplinary exhibitions and programs that explore how bodies move through social and political spaces in Silicon Valley beginning in the spring of 2018 and continuing into 2019. The project addresses timely topics such as bicycle transportation and urban planning, navigation and orientation, public protest, immigration, and migration.
“New Terrains” will engage the body in participatory experiences that highlight sight, sound, and scent, as well as exhibitions that consider how contemporary artists explore movement, such as walking and dance, in their work. With expanding partnerships “New Terrains” will embrace multidisciplinary thinkers and cultural producers through a growing range of events. Collaboratively presented through spring of 2019 by organizations of all sizes and types — from museums and artist residencies to community centers and civic think tanks — exhibitions and programs will take place across Silicon Valley.
