The Way the Mystic Sees

Sep 6 – Dec 14, 2019

Opening Reception: Sep 6, 5 – 8PM

This exhibition surveys contemporary perspectives and historical approaches to technology and surveillance. Works in the exhibition appear in a range of media – from language to video – to establish a spectrum of the technological. Certain artworks directly elucidate the subject of surveillance, while others begin to locate life beyond being and feeling watched.

Nadav Assor, Nick Cave, Mary Helena Clark, Max Guy, Christopher Meerdo, Asa Mendelsohn, Catherine Sullivan, Maryam Taghavi, and Marilyn Volkman

Presented in collaboration with Human Rights Watch

The September 6 opening reception will be at our new location, 688 N Milwaukee Avenue.
