CCS Bard Presents "Picture Industry" and "No to the Invasion" at Hessel Museum of Art

Picture Industry, Curated by Walead Beshty On View June 24 - December 15, 2017

With works by over 80 artists (ranging from historical documents to major installations), Picture Industry reflects upon transformations in the production and distribution of photographic images as realized through its varied constructions of the corporeal, from its origin as scientific tool and a means of cultural investigation to its phenomenological effects on a viewer. Methodologically, the exhibition complicates traditional accounts of the medium, drawing from photography's role within science and the humanities to contemporary art. The exhibition encompasses a broad range of photographic practices from the late 19th century to the present.

No to the Invasion: Breakdowns and Side Effects On View June 24 - October 29, 2017

Explores the ways in which art extends across and operates
within volatile social structures, political regimes, and economic systems. Featuring works dating from 1990 to
2016, the exhibition invokes socio-political and economic histories that intersect a shared geo-political space: the
Arabic-speaking world—a geographic region that includes the twenty-two countries of the Arab League and
whose contemporary coordinates lay between Mauritania, North Africa, and West Asia.
