Exhibition: Surveillance: From Vision to Data
On view from Friday, Sept. 22 to Sunday, June 23, this timely exhibit considers surveillance beyond the realm of cameras and their watchers, exposing the profound influence of data. Learn about the historical instruments that have been used to transform individuals and landscapes into data. Uncover how powerful entities, from colonial empires to U.S. intelligence agencies, have harnessed surveillance data to produce and perpetuate hierarchies of human difference. Interactive critical artworks challenge and resist surveillance through data. Look beyond vision and toward data to reveal an elusive, and now ubiquitous, form of visibility. Admission to Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments is free.
