American Artist
My Blue Window

October 6, 2019 – February 16, 2020

Jerome Foundation Fellow American Artist presents My Blue Window, a multimedia installation that continues Artist’s exploration of institutionalized racism. The exhibition focuses on predictive policing software technologies, which send police to patrol purported “high risk” crime zones before incidents are even reported. Though these digital tools appear to be neutral, My Blue window reveals how they reinforce the racial bias in law enforcement.

Pia Camil

Fade into black: sit, chill, look, talk, roll, play, listen, give, take, dance, share
October 6, 2019 – February 16, 2020

Manufactured in Latin America and Southeast Asia, cotton t-shirts travel north to be printed, worn, and discarded, then travel south again in bulk to be sold in the second-hand markets of Mexico City. Mexican artist Pia Camil has sewn them together and imported them again as a massive curtain-like artwork. Sit on the carpet or on stuffed jean sculptures and ask yourself: how does a t-shirt’s message change when it travels across borders?
