Lynn Hershman @ Bridget Donahue, through April 5
99 Bowery, 2nd Floor
New York, NY 10002 USA
Wednesday–Sunday, 12-6 PM
Over the last three decades, artist and filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson has been internationally acclaimed for her pioneering use of new technologies and her investigations of issues that are now recognized as key to the working of our society: identity in a time of consumerism, privacy in a era of surveillance, interfacing of humans and machines, and the relationship between real and virtual worlds.
According to the Times, Ms. Donahue said she had been drawn to Ms. Hershman Leeson as a kind of prophet of “our cybernetic condition,” through early interactive works that delved into artificial intelligence and surveillance and yearslong performances that blurred the line between acting and life.
The exhibition is open through April 5.
