Fashion is a form of language. What we wear broadcasts criti cal information about us and serves as a visible indicator of social rank\, profession\, ethnicity\, or status. This exhibition of Asian textiles and other works from the Cantor&rsquo\;s collection demonstrates how costume an d objects of personal adornment functioned as a method of identification an d display from the late 18th century to today. Ranging from Qing court cost umes to Indonesian textiles\, the selection on view spotlights visual symbo ls while showcasing rarely displayed garments.

While the Dutch Republic experienced unprecedented economic prosperity in the 17th century\, printmakers were exceptionally sensitive&m dash\;and sometimes obsessive&mdash\;when rendering the details of everyday life. Their style introduced visual realism to the dramatic and dynamic co mpositions characteristic of the Baroque. A hallmark of Dutch prints create d during this Golden Age is their depiction of the grit\, dark corners\, an d textures present in the mundane objects featured in domestic scenes\, lan dscapes\, portraits\, and even compositions interpreting literature or reli gious texts.

This exhibition takes a close examinat ion of visual culture&mdash\;particularly images\, works\, and ideas in the contemporary arts\, justice movements\, and popular culture to reflect on North American demographic and cultural change and cultural politics&mdash\ ;since 1965. From the Watts uprising to the #BlackLivesMatter movement\, fr om multiculturalism through hip­\;hop to the reception of post­\;iden tity art\, we explore the questions: How do Americans see race now? Do we s ee each other any more clearly than before? Inspired by award­\;winning journalist and Stanford faculty Jeff Chang&rsquo\;s 2014 book \;Who We Be: The Colorization of America\, this exhibition combines selecti ons from the Cantor&rsquo\;s collection\, objects and artwork from Stanford &rsquo\;s Institute for Diversity in the Arts\, and loaned artworks specifi c for this project.

This installation of prints\, drawings \, and photographs explores how French artists depicted the landscape in th e modern age and approached making art &ldquo\;en plein air&rdquo\; (in the open air). The phenomenon of making art outdoors took shape in the early d ecades of the 19th century with the experimental Barbizon School of painter s and fully flourished under the Impressionists. Exhibition highlights incl ude photographs by painter James Tissot (1836&ndash\;1902)\, a rare clich&e acute\;-verre&mdash\;a drawing reproduced using a photographic process&mdas h\;by Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot (1796&ndash\;1875)\, and prints by Camill e Pissarro (1831&ndash\;1903).

Resp onding to sounds harvested from YBCA&rsquo\;s interior space and the Yerba Buena Garden and nearby city street noise\, this site-specific artwork acti vates the south facing glass faç\;ade of the Grand Lobby with playful patterns of light reminiscent of a swarm of flying birds.

\n

During the day\, filtered sunlight produces ever-chan ging flickers of light and shadow\, while in the evening the faç\;ade is transformed into a dynamic electro-luminescent composition that electri fies the glass wall. Sound sensing spiders\, attached directly to individua l glass panels in the Grand Lobby\, transform the faç\;ade into what the artists call &ldquo\;urban sensors&mdash\;instruments to sense the city \, visualize its auditory pulse\, and amplify its latent energies into casc ades of light.&rdquo\; Real-time data collected from these audio sensors dr ive the direction and color of the swarming algorithm\, which generates pat terns of streaming light. The result is an artificially intelligent fa&cced il\;ade: a smart surface that can sense\, compute\, respond\, and interact with its surroundings.

\n

Lightswarm &rsquo\;s unique suspended light modules individually change their int ensity and color. Each module was created from 3D printed components\, cust om electronic elements\, addressable LED strips\, and laser-cut skins made out of recyclable PET plastic and synthetic paper. This work is an exemplar y display of Future Cities Lab&rsquo\;s interest in liminal spaces and loca tion\, as the glass wall allows for multiple views and perspectives on this ever-changing installation.
