Althea Thauberger "The Art of Seeing Without Being Seen" 2008 photographic mural
An exhibition of works by Althea Thauberger curated by Lindsey V. Sharman.
Those who appear in the works of Althea Thauberger are co-creators. Thauberger gives her subjects the opportunity to participate in the process of the making of their pictures—to be seen on their own terms. In this exhibition, the performative and theatrical nature of Thauberger’s work draws back the curtain on views of the military, allowing her subjects to reveal a myriad of perspectives on soldiering. This multiplicity brings attention to individuality within the military and shows the personal subjectivity of shared experience. The exhibition presents group dynamics as well as individuality, revealing a tension and a fluidity in relation to both.
