This exhibition booklet is a record of Art in the Age of Anxiety, an exhibition that brings together a global group of contemporary artists to explore the ways everyday devices, technologies and digital networks have altered our collective consciousness. The exhibition presents more than 60 works spanning sculpture, prints, video, virtual reality, robotics and algorithmic programs developed by more than 30 international artists.
The exhibition is curated by SAF Director of Collections and Senior Curator Omar Kholeif, and the design is created by architect—and Sharjah Biennial 13 participant—Todd Reisz.
