With an eclectic array of mediums and genres, this installation revealed the many ways artists working from the late 19th century to the present have experimented with the pleasures, hostilities and politics of spectatorship. This exhibition was co-curated by Duke professor Kimberly Lamm and her students in the Women’s Studies course Gender, Sexuality, and the Image, including Jesse Bandeen, Isalyn Connell, Blair Dawkins, Emily Ellsworth, Katy Falletta, Ngozi Esomonu, Paula Pimentel, Gregory Lahood, Yunyi Li, Addie Malone, Minali Nigam, Nicole Rudden, Busi Sibeko and Catherine White.
