Why the MAH?

Pulsions

"The choice to house PULSIONS at the MAH, in the proximity of Silicon Valley, directly inspires the spirit of this exhibition. With a focus on graphic art, PULSIONS explores worlds where the influence of science, technology, and politics are at the forefront. It evokes images of a California that is caught somewhere between myth and scientific reality. Each artist through their respective chosen field (typography, cosmology, meteorology, and other writing systems), questions the relationship between human beings and technology, the natural world, and the universe. In doing so, they discover the connection between science and spirituality, fusion and alienation."

- Pulsions Curator: Kalie Granier
