Sorting Daemons

Kathleen Ritter (2006) 'Hidden Camera'

After the excellent opening seminar over the weekend, the exhibition, Sorting Daemons: Art, Surveillance Regimes and Social Control is on at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston, Ontario, from 16 January – 18 April. The exhibition features works in a range of media-including painting, photography, video, installation and responsive electronic art-by artists Brenda Goldstein, Antonia Hirsch, David Kemp, Tran T. Kim-Trang, Germaine Koh and Ian Verchere, Arnold Koroshegyi, Ruthann Lee, Michael Lewis, Jill Magid, Walid Ra’ad; Kathleen Ritter, David Rokeby, Tom Sherman, Cheryl Sourkes and John Watt.  There is also a special video program, which draws on artists’ tapes produced over the past two decades. This exhibition extends off-site with presentation of Kathleen Ritter’s Hidden Camera at the Union Gallery in Queen’s University’s Stauffer Library until March 9.

The curators, Jan Allen and Sarah E.K. Smith, are also interested in having the exhibition go on tour in future, and would like to hear from galleries who might want to host the show. I’ll pass on any such inquiries…
