Tyler Stallings: Mapping the Mojave

Tyler Stallings (UCR / Sweeney Art Gallery) Staff

Mapping the Mojave offers a vision of the Mojave Desert from insider and outsider perspectives that evokes both cultural myths of the “desert” and explores the Mojave Desert in particular as an extra-urban hub where diverse communities seek refuge and flourish. During two months of intense activity in fall 2009, events will include temporary installations, guest speakers, spoken-word artists, film screenings, and desert excursions. Artists will be solicited primarily from within the ten-campus UC system through invitations and open call to faculty and grad students. Events will be presented in downtown Riverside at UCR ARTSblock and at the UC Riverside Palm Desert Graduate Center through the newly established Desert Studies.
