Trevor Paglen: Bloom. Sep 10 – Nov 10, 2020. Opening: Thursday, Sep 10. 11 AM – 6 PM
We are pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by American artist Trevor Paglen. Held both at 6 Burlington Gardens and online at pacegallery.com, Bloom explores Paglen’s central themes of artificial intelligence, the politics of images, facial recognition technologies, and alternative futures. Bloom coincides with two solo exhibitions presented at The Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh (Sep 4, 2020 – Mar 14, 2021) and at OGR Turin (Oct 10, 2020 – Jan 10, 2021).
Paglen’s complex and pioneering work examines the systems and technologies that shape society. Computing systems that collect, interpret, and operationalize data that defines and tracks identity, movement, and habits, fuel the artist’s broad practice. Employing a variety of disciplines throughout his oeuvre, from investigative journalism to scientific research, the exhibition will feature new sculptures, photographs, drawings and digital components that relate to corporate and state use of machine learning algorithms to monitor, extract value, and influence people’s lives.
