Disconnect is a group photography show presented by Seeing Collective in partnership with BKC and Lomography. The exhibition features work by 30 emerging artists with guest curation by Kara Milstein (Associate Photo Editor, Time Magazine), Eric Ogden (Photographer), J.J. Reddington (ICP Educator and Photographer at Buzzfeed).
The word Disconnect (meaning: to unplug or go offline) has become a ubiquitous term used in our everyday modern lives. Technology has allowed for new connections, access to people and places all over the world, while simultaneously distracting us from the present moment. This conflict poses the question: How does our online socializing equate to more human connection and within this duplicity, what broader meaning might we find in the word Disconnect?
In this group exhibition, we explore these ideas while painting a visual narrative of disconnect.
Opening Reception for Disconnect will be on Thursday, October 3, 2019 (6:00pm - 9:00pm) and will be on display through October 7, 2019 at The Contact Gallery (302 Morgan Ave #B2) in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
