This group exhibition is free and open to the public.
Exhibition is curated by Rolando Chang Barrero and explores *various writting on the issue of "gaze." 
see below.

Snapshots! Focuses on the artist's gaze: a snapshot of how the artist interpretes the world through the image making/creating process.

* "How the gaze is used as a vehicle for communication, and how exactly a gaze transmits information and assumptions about the viewer/viewed. Here a gaze can transcend the medium in which it is produced and contains social implications beyond its function within the work of art. The definition of gaze has thus evolved from just a “look” into an “intent” look (i.e. the intent behind the gaze becomes crucial for its definition) and gaze can be thought of as a dynamic medium bridging the gap between art form [link] and social theory. Other words for seeing simply do not contain this same ability to integrate politics with art history."
