The logics of perception and experience are no longer materialistically defined only by contours of geometric and linear time and space arranged hierarchically in a rigid lattice but rather follow curved, non-linear Rheimannian paradigms that are expressed in complicated, non-hierarchical, rhizomatic shifting patterns.
Conceptual Art as a Neurobiologic Praxis was an exhibition curated by Warren Neidich at the Thread Waxing Space, New York City, in 1999 which attempted to make explicit certain trends and ideas that were considered important parts of the history of Conceptual Art but which had not, up to that moment, been adequately explored.
