MICROLOGIES is an exhibition project founded by Aitor Lajarin of DXIX Projects L.A. which was first shown at Scharaun, Berlin at the B-LA connect project space Festival and at ARTRCC Harvard University, Boston in 2019. The aim is to expand the scope of the exhibition including a variety of Berlin and Los Angeles based artists for the updated version in 2022 at Irenic Projects in Pasadena alongside the B-LA connect project space Festival.

MICROLOGIES is a creative research project that is currently producing a series of group exhibitions, presentations, pedagogical activities and writings that revolve around the aesthetics of small-scale, micro materiality poetics and minimum gesture politics. This project proposes to explore the potential of minimum events and small gestures to open up spaces of philosophical discernment in relation to larger scale structures, patterns, events and paradigms.
