Data (after)Lives: The Persistence of Encoded Identity

Exhibition curators Alison Langmead, Josh Ellenbogen, Rich Pell, and Paulina Pardo Gaviria will be exploring how material technologies such as computerized facial recognition, DNA markers, fingerprint matching, and identity files have historically established a data-driven landscape onto which human beings inscribe notions of identity. Data (after)Lives investigates the variegated relationship between human notions of the self and the technical and mechanical prostheses that produce alternative, externalized—forcefully manipulable—representations of the human experience.

The exhibition will run until October 14, 2016. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10am-4pm. Special weekend hours will be held on Saturday, October 1st and Sunday, October 2nd, between 10am-4pm.
For special viewing outside of these hours, please contact the UAG curator, Isabelle Chartier, to make an appointment: ilc7@pitt.edu.

The University Art Gallery is located inside the Frick Fine Arts Building on the Oakland campus, across from Schenley Plaza.
