Hot Shots

Tempe has welcomed traveling Portuguese artist Miguel Palma to the ASU Art Museum, 699 South Mill Avenue, to show his work exploring the Southwest’s unique desert landscape. As a part of the Desert Initiative: Desert One regional collaboration, the exhibition, “Trajectory,” investigates Manifest Destiny and the military history of the American Southwest.

The artist developed a “Desert Initiative Remote Shuttle,” which he used to gather images of the arid desert landscape. Along with the images it collected, the shuttle will be on display as a part of the show. The work serves as a visual representation of exploration with ties to the local history, investigating how the past will affect the futures of both terrestrial and extraterrestrial exploration.
