Join our conversation The Personal as Political: Cross-cultural views of surveillance, control, and the body with the curator Joey Lico and the artists Ofri Cnaani and Eric Corriel from the show Polaris, now on view at Baxter St at CCNY through October 15, 2016.

Curator Joey Lico moderated a panel with artists, Eric Corriel and Ofri Cnaani, who were the subject of Lico’s exhibition Polaris. Corriel and Cnaani, discussed their practice in relations to the show’s themes of identify in relation to power and control. Focusing mainly on their personal experiences of dealing with surveillance and power structures, the panel dove into the personal experience as a political act and investigated the ways in which it relates to their art-making. Taking a broader look at the current political climate, panelists engaged with the audience for a reverse Q&A allowing for a deeper dialogue about personal experience and the role of art in society.
