Evolving from the work of twelve conceptual artists, filmmakers and photographers presenting alternate interpretations of fictional geographies, imaginary sites and “mash-up” destinations, the exhibition Rethinking Location reconsiders the notion of location. The work of Rosa Barba and Taryn Simon often derives from an interest in unusual places or improbable situations.
