Reimagining Reality:
Exploring Experience and Identity in the Age of Innovation

Exhibition runs Jan. 28 to March 15, 2019

The Gallery of the Common Experience presents its Spring 2019 exhibition, Reimagining Reality: Exploring Experience and Identity in the Age of Innovation. This show focuses on the ways in which visual media interact with the ever-changing landscape of culture, politics, and life. We seek to expand our understanding of innovation as more than a technological buzzword but rather a challenge to create a newer, better experience beyond our present reality. Approaching themes of the social and physical constructs of race, sexuality, gender and labor, this show will function as a space to recreate and re-interpret the world around us.

What to Expect
An exhibition highlighting student artists interpretation on the way we can change our perception of fixed realities.

Dr. Jeff Wilson is an academic and entrepreneur based in New York City. He is founder at the award-winning micro-housing company Kasita. Named one of Inc's 25 most disruptive companies in the world, Kasita homes are 350 square feet, incredibly smart, and beautifully designed. Formerly, Dr. Wilson was a professor and dean also known as "Professor Dumpster." He lived in a 33-square-foot modified trash dumpster for a year as a part of a minimalist housing experiment. Wilson has authored dozens of scientific articles, was named the University of Texas System's top assistant professor, and did his postdoctoral work at Harvard. Wilson's work on sustainability, minimalism, and social experimentation has been featured in The Atlantic, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. Beyond startups and dumpster diving, Professor Dumpster enjoys traveling - in another experiment, he took a girl he met online for a whirlwind date across seven countries in 21 days - with only the clothes on their backs (a book and soon to be a Hollywood movie).

What to Expect
A look into the future of real estate, innovation, community, sustainability and minimalism.
