Local Artists Collaborate on Exhibit Exploring Intersection of Data & Censorship

Uncensored: Information Antics in Celebration of Banned Books Week
Sept. 25 – Oct. 22

As we increasingly entrust others with our personal information and data, how can we ensure that our data is safe and protected from abuse and misuse? Uncensored: Information Antics, an all media art exhibition, will bring together local DC artists to explore the myriad of roles that data collection and visualization play regarding issues of privacy, participation, and location of the self.

Uncensored: Information Antics will be on display at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library from September 24 – October 22 to celebrate Banned Books Week, an annual national celebration of the freedom to read, express and create. Through photography, video, installation and sound the artists participating in UNCENSORED: Information Antics investigate the complexity of an intensely networked milieu with thoughtfulness and humor.

You won’t want to miss the opening night of Uncensored, a fundraiser for the DC Public Library Foundation, featuring provocative art, live music and exclusive cocktails on Fri., Sept. 25. Tickets are $50.
