"On View" grapples with and comments on the complicated relationship between art, images and consumerist culture. The experience of art has been altered by audience’s incessant image-making and social media’s co-optation of installation art, with some attending not to see what is on view, but instead to see themselves on view. The performance installation incorporates this phenomenon into the creation of the work itself — "On View" is intentionally incomplete without audience-as-subject. The multilayer engagement incorporates an audience-reactive kinetic environment and a series of performances in the space for the duration of the exhibition.
Drawing from their experience working in various public environments, the artists explore our complex relationships with technology, social media and representation.
This exhibition is part of SCAD deFINE ART 2019, held Feb. 26–28 at university locations in Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia.
