The Peeled Eye
In our contemporary culture, the Internet, the logic of algorithmic processing, social media, and surveillance are conditions of our everyday existence. The Peeled Eye investigates the idea of constant supervision and the immense amount of data and images that emerge from it. The artists in this exhibition seek to discover and understand how we are being watched and what this surveillance produces. The artists selected have chosen to appropriate images and content created by these outside sources, whether it be Google, social media, or surveillance cameras, and make artwork that reflects humanity in this unique place in time under the surveillance machine.
Curated by Calcagno Cullen, The Peeled Eye includes Bill Brown, Paolo Cirio, Mishka Henner, Will Knipscher, Andy Marko, and Doug Rickard.
Also on view at the FotoFocus ArtHub: Satellite Project Space, is an extension of The Peeled Eye exhibition from October 5–9, 2016.
