Smart to the Core - Medium / Image Smart Museum of Art
In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change.
Bringing together paintings, photographs, prints, and new media, this conceptually-driven exhibition traces the philosophical and aesthetic debates that examine Western culture’s relationship with visual media. The works on view delve into questions of mimesis and indexicality, systems of value and reception, the dynamics of mediation, and the gendered and racialized gaze. In doing so, Smart to the Core: Medium / Image seeks to interrogate the structures that underpin perception and explore the social impact of visual culture.
Participating artists: Gerhard Richter and Dara Birnbaum
