Excursus II:
East of Borneo

through March 25, 2012

East of Borneo launches Excursus II, with an installation that considers ways in which information from the past can be organized and disseminated in order to be given a renewed sense of relevance to contemporary practice and politics. Imagined as both a discussion space and reading room, the exhibition will include numerous public events that are rooted in the material from East of Borneo’s contribution to Pacific Standard Time, the ICA archive, and other archives relating to Philadelphia’s past.

Launched in October 2010 by Thomas Lawson, artist and dean of the School of Art at the California Institute of the Arts, and Stacey Allan, East of Borneo is a collaborative online magazine of contemporary art and its history as considered from Los Angeles. It is a new type of publication that rethinks the way that we conceptualize, preserve, and present the various histories of contemporary art.
