Utopia or Oblivion a solo exhibition by Kevin Clancy
On View: October 10 - November 29, 2019
Bunker Projects presents Utopia or Oblivion, a new installation by Kevin Clancy that explores the complex effects of rapid technological acceleration on contemporary culture. Through a series of speculative artifacts from imagined futures, Utopia or Oblivion examines the omnipresent forces of the internet, social media, surveillance, and screens in contemporary life. The exhibition will feature a series of new mixed-media sculptures, bathed in dichroic light, accompanied by a soundscape composed by John Also Bennett.
Funding for Utopia or Oblivion was provided by Investing in Professional Artists Grants Program, a partnership of The Pittsburgh Foundation and The Heinz Endowments.
