On Watching and Being Seen Exhibition

My work Pixelhead will be exhibited at the NIU Art Museum in Illinois, USA. The exhibition ’On Watching and Being Seen’ explores the voyeur and the exhibitionist in both older and contemporary works, especially work that responds to the impact of social media and technology in defining what is private and what is public.
