How We Move

Humans have long exhibited an innate need to classify, categorize and taxonomize everything we encounter. Such a process helps us better grasp the complex, sometimes impalpable relationships between objects. Its history can be traced back to our earliest ancestors, when knowledge of what plants they could and couldn’t eat and from what animals they should and shouldn’t flee would trigger an appropriate reaction and determine our ability to survive. How We Move, the newest exhibition at the SPUR Urban Center, applies a similar level of classification to the multiplicity of transportation modes that we experience on a daily basis. Come explore this new transportation taxonomy that communicates how people around the world travel from city to city, place to place and anywhere to home.


This exhibition is free to the public. Related events may have admission fees.
