SXSW Art Program Exhibit- “Not Only Will I Stare” curated by Dr. Simone Browne UT Austin
"Not Only Will I Stare" brings together artists whose works grapple with the surveillance of Black life, from policing & the carceral state to the FBI and oppressive gazes. Through their looking back, disruptions, & their troubling and theorizing of surveillance, the works that make up the exhibition reveal the emancipatory possibilities of creative innovation. Selected artists include Sadie Barnette, Sable Elyse Smith, & American Artist. The show is curated by Dr. Simone Browne, Associate Professor in African & African Diaspora at UT Austin. She is the author of "Dark Matters: On the Surveillance of Blackness," which considers race and blackness as central to the field of surveillance studies, and investigates the roots of present-day surveillance practices.
