Best Museum Exhibition - 2012
"Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance, and the Camera Since 1870" at Walker Art Center
1750 Hennepin Ave.
Minneapolis, MN 55403
The Walker Art Center offered "Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance, and the Camera" from May to September last year, giving visitors a raw look at the world we live in, where we are constantly exposed to being spied on. The photos in the exhibit were pictures taken without their subjects' knowledge, including Brassai's lovers in Paris, photos taken by private investigators that were commissioned by the subject of the surveillance, and the infamous image of a Viet Cong execution from the 1960s. Added up, the exhibit served as a reminder — or warning — of the tenuous border between public and private.
