From Speaker to Receiver
seeks to explore the role of spoken and written
communication as a catalyst for social agency in a world radically altered
by digital information and social networking. The exhibition specifically looks
at how artists use the linguistic transfer of information to address a broad
set of issues pertaining to political and religious propaganda, history, and
translation. Together the works construct a unique visual syntax into how we
receive and process information in an increasingly media saturated and
globalized society. The full artist list is as follows:
Fernando Bryce (Peru); Shilpa Gupta (India); Zoe Leonard (New York);
Daniel Joseph Martinez (Los Angeles); Michael Muller (Germany);
Amalia Pica (Argentina/Britain); and Anri Sala (Albania).
