Event description

Description

Geared toward undergraduate students and focusing on the current exhibitions at the Institute for the Humanities, this contemporary series of discussions offers a fresh take on the basics of looking and evaluating art in the gallery and how it’s organized, making the connection from the traditional “white cube gallery” to iGen visual worlds like Facebook and Instagram. Lunch will be served. Today: How to look at the art of Paloma Munoz and Walter Martin with Institute for the Humanities curator Amanda Krugliak.

About the exhibition:
Blind House: Utopia and Dystopia iin the Age of Radical Transparency, by collaborative artists Paloma Munoz and Walter Martin, is a razor-sharp work that brings into question our ideals of house and home, privacy, and safety.

The exhibition combines photographs the artists have envisioned of houses without windows as well an actual glass house planned for the center of the gallery, revisiting the whole notion of a glass house as an example of sophistication, luxury, and modernism.

In a darkening an era of surveillance and the internet, for Martin and Munoz, Blind House serves as "a metaphorical solution to the full on campaign against personal privacy."
