“R. Luke Dubois—In Real Time” Exhibition

Andrew Chatfield writes in from the CFA to invite you to see a gallery exhibit by R. Luke Dubois:

Genre-defying composer, artist, and performer R. Luke DuBois utilizes data to create maps, scores, and videos that explore subjects including the Iraq War and the census; and that raise questions of artistic agency, privacy, and fair use. Organized as a database of his projects and concerns, the exhibition “R. Luke DuBois: In Real Time” is the first major gallery presentation of his work, and will include recent and commissioned pieces that take as their basis real-time data flows, topical statistics, and contemporary media footage. Co-sponsored by Wesleyan’s Department of Art and Art History, Department of Government, Digital and Computational Knowledge Initiative, Information Technology Services, the Office of Academic Affairs, and the Quantitative Analysis Center.
