Dirt is a substance so common that it is known to all. It may be dust, soil, earth, clay, loam, grime, silt, filth, or mud. It is waste, excrement, rubbish, and bacteria. It is reviled and cherished, an enemy in the home or laboratory and a foundation for plant life and mighty buildings.

This exhibition is accompanied by a catalog with contributions by Katherine Ashenburg, Anonda Bell, Caren King Choi, William Bryant Logan, Vin Ryan, and Nükhet Varlick.
