'Surveillance' exhibit at Art Museum, Jan. 19-March 31
Posted January 18, 2002; 04:19 p.m.
A multimedia exhibition that examines questions of surveillance at a time when issues of security and civil liberties are increasingly urgent opens at the Princeton University Art Museum Saturday, Jan. 19.
"Anxious Omniscience: Surveillance and Contemporary Cultural Practice" will be on view through Sunday, March 31.
Even prior to the recent growth of powerful surveillance technologies and the shift in focus from military to domestic space, artists around the world have explored the dynamics of watching and being watched, and investigated various questions posed by the new tracking practices. A sampling of their work, across a variety of old and new media, is presented in this exhibition.
