Organizer/Author
Trevor Paglen is an artist, writer, and experimental geographer in the Department of Geography at the University of California at Berkeley. His work involves deliberately blurring the lines between social science, contemporary art, and a host of obscure disciplines in order to construct unfamiliar, yet meticulously researched ways to interpret the world around us. His most recent projects involve secret military bases, the California prison system, and the CIA’s practice of “extraordinary rendition.” Paglen’s artwork has been recently shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2003), California College of the Arts (2002), MASS MoCA (2006), Halle 14—Stiftung Federkiel (2006), Diverse Works (2005), and at numerous other venues, universities, conferences, and public spaces. He has had one-person shows at Deadtech (2001) and The LAB (2005). In November, 2006 he will have a solo exhibition at Bellwether Gallery (2006). Paglen has published articles in Blu Magazine, Art Journal, Cultural Geographies, Clamor Magazine, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Leonardo Music Journal, and Cabinet Magazine. His first book, Torture Taxi: On the Trail of the CIA’s Rendition Flights (co-authored with AC Thompson) will be published by Melville House in the fall of 2006. Paglen holds a BA from UC Berkeley, an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and is currently completing a PhD in the Department of Geography at the UC Berkeley.
