i/c/U/: Connection & Control

home school and S1 are excited to present i/c/U/, a group exhibition which is the culmination of a home school class taught by Hiba Ali, opening 31 Aug 2018 and on view until 15 Sept 2018.

In two reading group sessions and one production-focused workshop on Unity, Blender, and other digital worldmaking tools, i/c/U/ students explored compliance and control in the panoptic state of surveillance, strategies of obfuscation, and the effects of ideas of data ownership on policy.

Curated by Hiba Ali, the exhibition features work from the following participants of the class: Matthew Ward, Zachary Nicol, Tim Combs, Parsa Sanjana Sajid, Tabitha Nikolai, Jamondria Harris, and garima thakur in collaboration with Autumn Knight.

The exhibition is paired with a forthcoming publication printed by Letra Chueca.

home school is a free pop-up art school in Portland, OR run by Victoria Anne Reis and manuel arturo abreu. They provide welcoming contexts for critical engagement with contemporary art and its issues.

The 2018 curriculum is funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Calligram Foundation / Allie Furlotti, and a Rhizome Net Art Microgrant.
