Shadow Stalker

November 13, 2019 – January 12, 2020                    The Shed, 4th floor, 545 West 30th Street, New York

Shadow Stalker is a “live” interactive installation that uses algorithms, performance and projections to make visible private Internet systems like Predictive Policing that are increasingly used by law enforcement and promote racial profiling. Shadow Stalker will be exhibited for the first time at The Shed, from November 13th – January 12th, as part of the Manual Override exhibition.


Feature on Art21

Lynn Hershman Leeson is at once a pointed critic and a sly practical jokester, as she explores the roles that technology, media, and artifice play in society. This episode surveys the artist’s richly varied body of work, from her early performances as the fictional character Roberta Breitmore to the more recent VertiGhost, a work incorporating surveillance video and sculpture that offers a feminist riff on Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo.” Overlooked for the better part of her decades-long career, Leeson is now recognized as a pioneering multidisciplinary artist and critiques the gender biases that excluded her and other women artists.
