Conspiratorial Aesthetics

Exhibition: March 1 - April 6, 2019

The Hite Art Institute is pleased to present, Conspiratorial Aesthetics, an exhibition that investigates the form and function of conspiracy in contemporary art. Featuring digital renderings of undercover adulterous bots, schematics for car bombs that didn’t exist, and frantic notations on silhouette targets, the exhibition asks, “What does conspiracy look like? And why does so much new art look conspiratorial?”

With work by Cara Benedetto, Deb Sokolow, !Mediengruppe bitnik, Raqs Media Collective, and Walid Raad, Conspiratorial Aesthetics invites us to consider the role of informational art in the “information age,” an era obsessed by networks of information exchange and therefore plagued by conspiracy theories, the aestheticization of information, and undemocratic control of the networks information travels.
