I'm pleased to announce the opening of "Google Art, or How to Hack Google", an online exhibition I organized for Rhizome, during my time there.
Almost coinciding with the ninth anniversary of Google search engine (last Thursday, September 27), the show "Google Art, or How to Hack Google" aims to illuminate and critique the influence of this expanding online institution. Artworks include ad hacks that attempt to foil Google's seemingly unstoppable business machinery, playful re-interpretations of search results and alterations of its geographical worldview. Together, they elevate and critique Google's logic, while recognizing its own deepening relationship with our culture, behavior and lives.
"Google Art, or How to Hack Google" is an online show organized by Rhizome and curated by Ana Otero.
