Objects Recognized in Flashes is the title of a group exhibition focusing on approaches to the surfaces of photographs, products, and bodies in a greatly digitalized society. As the interface between optics and object, these seductive and ambiguous surfaces make relations between aesthetics, imagination, and material seem highly dubious, as also are the economies that underlie these relations. The exhibition was conducted in close cooperation with the artists Michele Abeles, Annette Kelm, Josephine Pryde, and Eileen Quinlan, who are actively and broadly involved in the final planning and selection of works.
