About the Experimental History Project
The Experimental History Project is an interdisciplinary platform for exhibitions, research, and events exploring experimental practices of architectural and urban history.
Launched by CCA professors Irene Cheng and David Gissen, the Experimental History Project is an initiative of CCA’s MAAD-HTX (History, Theory, Experiments) degree program.
Past events organized by the Experimental History Project include Test Sites: Experimental Histories of Space and An Olfactory Archive, an exhibition on artists and historians who harness scents, essences, and fragrances in the reconstruction and preservation of historical spaces.
With support from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts
