Alex Kitnick, “Aaron Flint Jamison,” Artforum, October, 2015. (Exhibition: Miguel Abreu, New York, NY)

“…this is an art that really doesn’t need you. And yet you are somehow implicated within it: caught on its cameras, trying (somewhat comically) to open its doors. Whereas artists such as Daniel Buren and Michael Asher have investigated the ideological and economic realities governing the gallery and museum, Jamison focuses on the various gadgets and monitors that regulate one’s experience in these spaces while relating them, more broadly, to our society of control. Everything is painfully encrypted here and yet at the same time prone to leaks and malfunction. What parts are working? What is connected? Where is the information? How will it get out? Is the whole thing a decoy to distract you from seeing something else?”
