Strange Pilgrims

Strange Pilgrims, organized by The Contemporary Austin, weaves fourteen artists into a loose collection of propositions occupying unconventional spaces and formats, defining “experiential art” as work that is immersive, participatory, performative, and kinetic, and favoring art from the vantage point of the phenomenological experience. Strange Pilgrims represents the museum's most expansive gesture into the city of Austin and spans multiple venues: The Contemporary's two sites as well as the Visual Arts Center.
