Curatorial fellow David Harper maintains an active professional life in addition to the high stress demands we place on him here each week, what with Best Link Ever and all. He’s the visual arts curator at BAM, he’s an active Tumblr user, and a freelance curator par-excellence!
Tomorrow Harper offers one more fruit of his labor: NineteenEightyFour, a show at the Austrian Cultural Forum co-curated with Martha Kirszenbaum & David Komary. As the Orwellian title suggests, the artists in this exhibition consider forms of surveillance and control today. Artists include Cory Arcangel & Hanne Mugaas / Judith Fegerl / Nicolas Grospierre & Kobas Laksa / Dariusz Kowalski / Paul Laffoley / Mark Lombardi / Rachel Owens / Florian & Michaël Quistrebert / Gerold Tagwerker / Tris Vonna-Michell / Clemens von Wedemeyer / Flora Watzal / Jordan Wolfson
I’m totally going.
