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.” The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is pleased to present this new body of work by Maisel, who was awarded a prestigious 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Arts for the Proving Ground project.
