1708 is pleased to present Infrapolitics, an exhibition by Alan Ruiz. Reflexively engaging the physical and institutional conditions of 1708, Infrapolitics explores the systems through which power, in its literal and symbolic form, is distributed across spatial, social, and economic networks. Working with raw materials of the urban landscape – metal, glass, and electric light – Ruiz’s approach points to a complex mapping of the space between the aesthetic and political dimensions of the globalized built environment, probing a reconsideration of its supposed neutral infrastructures which are often kept out of view.
