Here, There and Everywhere: Truth and Liveness

 

June 13–July 12
Reception: Monday, June 16, 4:00–6:00 p.m.
The LeRoy Neiman Center Gallery, 37 S. Wabash Ave.

How is liveness implied through absence? Can the recorded still be live? Is it wrong to lie? Can we be everywhere at once? Here, There and Everywhere: Truth and Liveness investigates what it means to be present in the digital age. Angharad Davies (MFA 2014) and Stephen Kwok (MFA 2014) examine liveness through recorded interactions, audience-activated installations, and presentational lectures. The artist is always present. The artist lies.
