ART:TECH EXHIBITION at National Art Club, New York, explores ID as a phenomenon with wide scatter of meanings – from the term in psychoanalysis (id) to the document that certifies one’s identity (ID) – from the forms of sociopolitical functioning of portraits of Soviet Nonconformism to the images of mass culture, aesthetics of ID cards, passport picture and social networks. This exhibition brings together a collection of experiential-based ideas and projects mediated by technologically progressive visualization methods, as well as paintings, drawings, photography, video, and sculpture.
