Cirkus Diurnus

Sketchbooks of a Traveling Artist

A playful and profound exhibit featuring the art of journals and sketchbooks. Explore the creative process of cultural anthropologist and trend spotter Mikel Cirkus. From cities around the world, in 63 journals spanning nearly 40 years, Mikel set out to capture moments between the thought, the pen and the paper—magic that is slipping away from our increasingly digital worlds.

“The beauty of keeping a journal is that you may literally see thought coming to page, The pages develop from brain to heart to hand, to pen to paper.”

Cirkus Diurnus was separated into 5 acts and a lobby space:
