Looks at ICA London

Looks is a group exhibition that includes works by Juliette Bonneviot, Andrea Crespo, Morag Keil, Wu Tsang and Stewart Uoo. Through a wide range of media, from film installation and painting, to sculpture and photography, this exhibition explores the ways in which mass digital culture informs how identity is constructed, performed and challenged.

Using methods that are playful and responsive to new technologies, many artists today engage with notions of a post-human world, particularly in relation to gender and sexuality. Today, the body and the expression of its identity are no longer automatically linked, and the physical body itself is noticeably absent.

Objects, words and digital images are main tools of representation as the links between identity and brand become increasingly blurred in late capitalist society.

Adopting the position of the ‘prosumer’, at once a spectator and an individual creator of culture, it is the online self that is required to be ever present, ever responsive, ever communicated and ever performed. To coincide with the exhibition, there will be an associated programme of talks, performance events and film screenings.

The Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, is proud to present STARS: Six Contemporary Artists from Japan to the World from Friday, July 31, 2020, to Sunday, January 3, 2021. The decades of postwar economic growth were punctuated in Japan by a series of national events including the Olympics and World Expo, as the country began to turn its gaze outward once more. In the contemporary art world, the period was characterized by debates on decolonization and multiculturalism, and the proliferation of new contemporary art settings, such as biennials and art fairs.
