Call for Artists:

Spring '12 exhibit: Trace/Tracking

POSTED BY: Plexus NYC | Tue Apr 19th, 2011 2:34 p.m.

A person’s location has less to do with physical signifiers than the streams of
data by which existence is registered. Cell-phone GPS, credit card swipes, and
IP addresses constitute an accurate record of a person’s daily life. This
exhibit calls for work that explores the impact of such data on physical
integrity, and the state of compromised privacy into which a contemporary
citizen must enter. How can artistic practice subvert these apparently
threatening information systems, or, in equal measure, capitalize on their
possibilities? Looking for work in all media that demonstrates resistance or
complicity with the overwhelming capabilities of information technology.
Show to take place in April or May of 2012. Limited funds allotted for exhibition
costs. Venue space TBA, in Manhattan/Brooklyn area.
