'Surveillance Society' 

When: Jan. 24-April 20 2014
Phone: 802-253-8358
This exhibit, which aims to address the contemporary dichotomies of “privacy and safety, security and freedom, public and personal,” showcases six artists: Hasan Elahi, Adam Harvey, Charles Krafft, Eva and Franco Mattes, and David Wallace. Both using and implicating technology, their mixed-media contributions deal with ripped-from-the-headlines topics including cellphone records, drones, infrared cameras, data theft, remote warfare and state violence. The exhibit is not without humor, however: Krafft’s porcelain surveillance camera, painted in a Delft pattern, shakes up the whole notion of looking closely. And wait ’til you see Harvey’s fashionable “Stealth Wear.” “Surveillance Society” is on view at the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe through April 20. Pictured: “Hawkeye” by Hasan Elahi.
