Deborah Colton opening reception: Suzanne Anker: Remote Sensing: Micro-landscapes and Untold Stories


Deborah Colton Gallery, a participating space in the FotoFest 2014 Biennale, presents Remote Sensing: Micro-landscapes and Untold Stories, an exhibition of artworks by visual artist and theorist Suzanne Anker.

As an educator, Anker has been successful in publishing and contributing to many academic volumes that express an emphasis on the incorporation of scientific and technological influence to explore the ways in which social, ethical and cultural values are shaped. Her publications include The Molecular Gaze: Art in the Genetic Age, co-authored with the late sociologist Dorothy Nelkin, published in 2004 by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press; and Visual Culture and Bioscience, co-published by University of Maryland and the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. Her writings have appeared in Art and America, Seed. Nature Reviews Genetics, Art Journal, Tema Celeste and M/E/A/N/I/N/G.

Anker has been a speaker at Harvard University, the Royal Society in London, Cambridge University, Yale University, the London School of Economics, the Max-Planck Institute, University of Leiden, the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum in Berlin, the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, Banff Art Center and many others. Chairing SVA's Fine Arts Department in New York City since 2005, Anker continues to interweave traditional and experimental media in her department's new digital initiative.

On view through April 26.
