DESCRIPTION

This exhibition examines the relationship between the notion of the Flaneur and the City derive under the pressure of being watched via CCTV cameras and monitoring. How does one engage with the disinterested observations of the wandering eye when self-consciousness about being both the observer and the observed interfere with the experience?

Special Opening Screenings by: Vito Acconci, Jenny Holzer and Sterling Ruby
