New York-based artist Lucy Raven uncovers the complexities at play in technology through an exploration of topics such as the outsourcing of post-production work for the film industry, evolving technical standards in film projection, and the immense infrastructure behind the global copper mining industry. For her solo presentation at YBCA, Raven stages a new anaglyph 3D video installation entitled Curtains that creates a portrait of an otherwise invisible global assembly line of post-production studios worldwide providing a glimpse into the human hands that lie behind the spectacle of fantastic computer-generated simulations. A series of screenprints from Raven’s ongoing RPx project are also featured in the exhibition, as well as a new lenticular print.
Part of the Control: Technology in Culture exhibition series, YBCA’s ongoing series of solo exhibitions in the Upstairs Galleries showcasing work by emerging and mid-career artists who examine the social, cultural, and experiential implications of technology. Curated by Ceci Moss, the exhibitions in this series seek to prompt timely questions about the profound and far-reaching influence of technology in our daily lives by focusing on artists whose work spans a multitude of disciplines and relates to a diverse set of issues, including architecture, acoustics, psychology, labor, consumerism, the environment, and the military.
