Four Clouds by artist Trevor Paglen

Trevor Paglen’s work spans image-making, sculpture, investigative journalism, writing, engineering and more.

In Autumn 2019, artist and geographer Trevor Paglen will create a new body of work for The Curve. Paglen focuses on the significance of the historical moment we live in, seeking to develop the means to imagine alternative futures through his work.

Past projects include launching an artwork into distant orbit around the Earth in 2012, contributing research and cinematography to the Academy Award-winning film Citizenfour in 2014 and creating a radioactive public sculpture for the exclusion zone in Fukushima, Japan in 2015.
