Artist Trevor Paglen, best-known for long-distance photographs of secret government sites and his contributions to the Edward Snowden documentary Citizenfour, will present his work at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA) Thursday, October 27, at 7 pm.



Often described as experimental geography, Paglen’s work calls attention to concealed and often alarming aspects of our present time—work that is especially relevant in the West, home to many secret spaces. The event is sponsored by XMission, with additional support from Utah Humanities, and is part of the UMFA’s ARTLandish: Land Art, Landscape, and the Environment series and the Utah Humanities Book Festival. It will be held in the Museum's Katherine W. and Ezekiel R. Dumke Jr. Auditorium.
