Jesse Vogler: Possible Measures

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 4:45pm to 6:00pm

Allen Memorial Art Building, Classroom 1
87 North Main Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

Please join us as Jesse Vogler, visiting assistant professor at the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Art, presents "Possible Measures."

Jesse Vogler is an artist and designer whose work sits at the intersection of spatial practices, material culture, and political economy. Drawn to questions that attach themselves to the periphery of architectural production, his projects take on themes of work, law, property, expertise, and perfectibility. Recent projects include a series of exhibits on the administrative landscape with the Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI), a performative land survey with Mildred’s Lane, and a site-specific installation at PLAND. 
   Vogler’s work has been supported by two Graham Foundation grants and has been exhibited at the Venice Architecture Biennale, the CLUI, the Center for Contemporary Arts Santa Fe, and the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts. Publications featuring his writings and work include [bracket], Thresholds, Artform, Domus, and the Los Angeles Times.
   In addition to his art practice, Vogler is a land surveyor, co-directs the Institute of Marking and Measuring, and teaches architecture, landscape, art, and urbanism.

This lecture is presented with support from the Ellen Johnson Visiting Artist Fund and the Clarence Ward Fund.
