Join internationally-renowned artist Xu Bing for a very special screening of his feature film Dragonfly Eyes (2017). Composed from more than 10,000 hours of footage culled from surveillance databases and websites, the video integrates actual fragments of contemporary life to weave together a fictional narrative shedding light on image-making, fame, and self-surveillance in the digital age. This screening will be followed by a Q&A.
