Trevor Paglen at Bellwether

Topic(s): Exhibition | No Comments

Date/Time: 16/11/2006 12:00 am


Here are the details for the show:
November 16, 2006, 6-8pm followed by after-party
Bellwether Gallery
134 Tenth Ave (between 18th and 19th Streets)
New York, NY
What will be in the show:
* Black sites in Afghanistan where “ghost” prisoners and victims of
extraordinary rendition have been held including SALT PIT (I believe that
I’m the only person to have photographed these places – this show is their
public debut)
* Secret military bases in the US (Area 51, Area 52, etc.). These images
are shot from dozens of miles away using a technique I developed using
astronomical equipment
* Videos shot using the same technique
* A collection of patches and symbols from unacknowledged military
programs (these are insane! this is the first time that these are being
shown)
* A piece called “Missing Persons” which is crafted from a collection of
signatures from the non-existent people who own the CIA’s “torture planes”
The show is up until December 23rd.
