David Maisel: Proving Ground Exhibition

clear clear

Join us to celebrate the opening of David Maisel's "Proving Ground" a new exhibition exploring the military testing site Dugway Proving Ground through large scale photographs and video installation. The reception will be free and open to the public and refreshments will be served.

In a remote region of Utah’s Great Salt Lake Desert, a classified military site called Dugway Proving Ground remains largely hidden from public view, closed to civilians and rarely seen in the media. Since its founding during World War II, Dugway Proving Ground has been a test site for chemical and biological weapons.

In 2014, after a decade of inquiry to the Pentagon, artist David Maisel was granted access to Dugway Proving Ground.Through large-scaled photographs and video projection, Proving Ground immerses the viewer in this surreal and alien realm –in Maisel’s words, a "hidden, walled-off, and secret site that offers the opportunity to reflect on who and what we are collectively, as a society."
