Prologue: Covert Operations
September 2 - 22
As the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 have catalyzed geopolitics today, so the Cold War set America’s course in the second half of the last century. Prologue presents films by Jenny Perlin and Kerry Tribe that commingle factual research and artistic license, re-creating Cold War crises that are important background for many artworks in Covert Operations: Investigating the Known Unknowns.

Covert Operations: Investigating the Known Unknowns
September 28 - January 11
This is the first major survey of a generation of artists working in the violent and uncertain decade following the 9/11 terrorist attacks to collect and reveal previously unreported information. This group of international artists includes Ahmed Basiony, Thomas Demand, Hasan Elahi, Harun Farocki, Jenny Holzer, Trevor Paglen and Taryn Simon. They use legal procedures as well as traditional research methods and resources such as the Freedom of Information Act, government archives, field research and insider connections, to create sophisticated artworks that push beyond conventional thinking.

Two photographic prints of the Westward Ho hotel by Andrew Pielage are on display in the lobby. The Westward Ho in Downtown Phoenix was the sister property to Hotel Valley Ho when it first opened. Andrew's prints are available for purchase, and he can be reached at
