Bill Gilbert's "Physiocartography 2005-2006" is a one person exhibition at the University of New Mexico's Art Museum. It includes works that he created at various campsites along journeys taken by Land Arts of the American West program from years 2004-2007. The exhibition consists of digital prints and videos. They represent Gilbert's investigations of the disjunction between our abstract conceptions of the landscape and the physical experience of topography and climate. Bill Gilbert is the founder of the Land Arts of the American West program, and "Physiocartography 2005-2006" is part of the LAND/ART project currently underway in New Mexico.

The exhibition runs from August 28 – November 25, 2009
Reception Friday, September 25, 5-7pm
