December 9, 2017 – January 7, 2018
Opening: Saturday, December 9, 2017, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
A group show exploring the seductive properties of photography and its ability to employ human curiosity as a catalyst for interaction.
Clickbait is an exhibition of photographic media that expands — and slows down — the idea of sensationalism and controversy within our digital age. The works culled from 14 different lens-based artists from across the country explore how sensationalism interacts with photography, how certain content can exploit the «curiosity gap» that exists when a viewer is presented with some information but not all, and how different parts of a thing can be emphasized or hidden to increase the «scandalousness» or lure of its appearance regardless of its true content.
Artists in the exhibition include:
