Eyebeam is pleased to announce the opening of State of Emergency, the inaugural exhibition of the Window Gallery, our new rotating gallery space programmed by Eyebeam fellows and residents and viewable on West 21st Street. State of Emergency, a deliberately provocative projection series organized and co-curated by Sherry Millner and Ernest Larsen, includes work by Eyebeam senior fellow Michael Mandiberg, Mary Kelly, Allan Sekula, Walid Raad, Leslie Thornton, Gregory Sholette, Louis Hock, Marty Lucas, Sally Stein, Martha Rosler, Ligorano/Reese, Yvonne Rainer, James T. Hong, and Yin-Ju Chen, as well as Millner and Larsen themselves.
State of Emergency began several years ago as a silent shout-out against the ever-deepening devastation of democracy, a group response to the manufactured "state of emergency" in which we live. This updated version reinterprets that theme to include caustic responses to the ever-deepening economic collapse.
This inaugural exhibition in the Window Gallery is an initiative of senior fellow Michael Mandiberg.
