KNOWLEDGES is an artist-organized curatorial initiative whose mission is to foster dialogue between contemporary art and unique geographic locations of under-examined cultural influence by organizing site-specific explorations and events. KNOWLEDGES seeks to broaden the context of contemporary art into the expanded field. Our primary focus is to explore sites that raise existential questions. Once a site is chosen, we facilitate tours for artists to connect with and experience the site, gather historical 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?

KNOWLEDGES is a project of the Pasadena Arts Council’s EMERGE Fiscal Sponsorship Program.
