KNOWLEDGES is an artist-organized curatorial initiative into the expanded field. Our mission is to create opportunities for artists and the public to experience site through the lens of art. Our primary focus examines sites that raise existential questions. Our first two major projects have examined Mount Wilson Observatory as a nexus of creative inspiration. We facilitate tours for artists to connect with and experience the site, gather research and produce a public exhibition with publication. Working closely at the intersection of site and observation, we ask how can art open new understandings of place?
