Tracking Systems: Andrea Campbell, Thomas Kneubühler, Guillermo Trejo
March 7 - March 14, 2014
Co-curated by three Carleton art history graduate students, this exhibition features three contemporary artists who investigate information tracking systems.
Andrea Cambell’s Surveillant Assemblage (2007, 2008, 2009) (2001) and Thomas Kneubühler’s Guard 2 (Kirk) (2006) focus attention on the relationship between information and the body in a world where surveillance systems constantly track our movements.
Guillermo Trejo uses printmaking as a tool to create his own tracking system by tracing relationships between words and phrases on encyclopedic pages in Universal (2013-14).
By exploring the material operation s of information tracking systems within our society, the works in this exhibition reveal the vast networks of visible and invisible actors engaged in data accumulation projects.
This exhibition has been organized in conjunction with the Art History Graduate Student Society conference Access/Restriction.
Drawing inspiration from the conference theme, Tracking Systems is sited in liminal spaces at CUAG: the first and second floor foyers and the first floor vitrine.
