To See Without Being Seen: Contemporary Art and Drone Warfare

When: Fri., Jan. 29, 7 p.m. and Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through April 24 2016

Drone warfare is the fastest-growing branch of the U.S. Air Force thanks to its cost efficiency and (purportedly) high success rate. But remotely piloted missile carriers rely on the quality of the images they transmit back to their distant pilots, as well as that pilot’s judgment. To See Without Being Seen: Contemporary Art and Drone Warfare explores the pitfalls of the technology and raises questions about surveillance, power and fear. This group exhibition features work from seventeen artists and collectives in a variety of media, including Shinseungback Kimyonghun’s Cloud Face (images of clouds that facial recognition software recognize as human) and Molleindustria’s video game Unmanned, which lets you simulate being a drone pilot by day and a family man by night.
