Privacy In Public Exhibit

The Privacy In Public exhibit ran from December 15, 2018 through February 1, 2019 as an extension of NYC Digital Safety. My project partners and I collaborated closely with Greta Byrum and Shannon Mattern to elevate a conversation about digital privacy in New York City’s communities through their local branch libraries. Nine library branches hosted a distributed exhibition of site-specific artworks exploring issues related to digital risk and privacy. Artists American Artist, Salome Asega, Tega Brain, Ingrid Burrington, Taeyoon Choi, Annabel Daou, Alejandra Delfin, Sam Lavigne, Mimi Onuoha, and Toisha Tucker created works that speak to their local contexts. As part of my work with NYC Digital Safety, I served as project manager for this exhibit. My work included:
  • Working with curators to review and provide feedback on artists’ proposals
  • Facilitating meetings with the artists and their library liaisons
  • Liaising with all groups to ensure the successful installation of artworks
  • Creating and maintaining the project website
  • ….and any other duties necessary to make this exhibit a reality
