Roxy Paine’s work is a skeptical inquiry into our contemporary spaces of technology, industry and control. In a series of sculptures and large-scale dioramas, Paine triggers psychological shifts through commonplace industries of utility, food, security and public desire – all of which coexist within apparatuses of surveillance. This exhibition is anchored by Checkpoint (2014), a room-sized TSA checkpoint, and includes other recent works realized by Paine’s obsessive processes and material transformations.

Presented in conjunction with the Center of Study of American Democracy’s April 6-8 conference on privacy, surveillance and big data hosted at the Gund Gallery.
