Gavin Kroeber is an artist whose projects and writings poach from visual art, urban theory, and performance. He produces performance events and curatorial projects that are concerned broadly with cultural dynamics of power and in particular with their expression in the poetics of place. His current work is focused on the extreme urbanism of America's Western Sun Belt and redirective approaches to landscape. Recent and upcoming projects include At the Edge of Everything Else, a temporary interdisciplinary social space for artists, architects, and urbanists; the performance-lecture Verdant Cities: A Warning; and the two-day event Dwell in Other Futures: Art / Urbanism / Midwest. He is Artistic Director of the arts initiative New Cities, Future Ruins and half of the event-based collaborative Experience Economies (with Rebecca Uchill) and holds a Master of Design Studies in Art, Design, and the Public Domain from the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
Experience Economies is an event-based research, art, and curatorial collaboration with Rebecca Uchill. Early projects (2010-2012) featured presentations, performances, and other contributions by Caitlin Berrigan, Tania Bruguera, Theaster Gates, David Levine, and others. Recent projects like At Home He’s a Tourist (2014) and Landscape Experience (2015) are featured on this site. A full archive of projects can be found on the Experience Economies website.
