Anomie? – James Depew

Anomie? – James Depew
August 2nd — 28th, 2018
Opening reception: August 2nd, 7 — 9 pm

James Depew is an educator, theorist, and social designer. Influenced by the ‘educational turn’ in art practice, he is interested in the way ideas and perceptions are bound to objects and images through various forms of interaction, and how these interactions both promote and undermine the democratization of access to knowledge. His work aims to create community with and through objects and images, by using generative techniques to trigger interactions that ask the viewer to re-examine their engagement with the ordinary world around them.
