April 29, 2018–September 3, 2017
The Broad, Los Angeles
From everyday experiences to protest movements as monumental as the Arab Spring uprisings across the Middle East, to themes that probe systems of social control or examine global commerce, artworks in Oracle tackle the effects of organizational frameworks on global events and private individuals. Some works in the exhibition symbolize marketplace machinations, both official and unofficial, while others are meditations on games, surveillance, vast data sets, mathematical and biological patterns, and even the logic of art itself. Work by Andreas Gursky, Albert Oehlen, Sterling Ruby, and Jeff Wall is included.
