About the Exhibition

Urban Asia: Kirk Pedersen
Although he was trained as a painter, Kirk Pedersen explores urban Asia through a camera lens, reconfiguring perceptions of the visual and spatial densities represented by the great cities there. His works show clear connections to the Abstract Expressionist and Minimalist movements of the 20th century, while capturing a distinct era in Asia’s transition to a global epicenter. Born in 1959 in Broken Bow, Nebraska, Pedersen moves through the Asian cities—which are his subjects for extended periods of time—composing intentional perspectives that highlight the charged relationship between resident and city, as well as a city’s spread into surrounding natural environs.
