Jun. 19-Jul. 7: A Quiet Disposition
The Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design present A Quiet Disposition, an exhibit of five research-based projects by James Bridle that center on the subject of drone warfare. The artist uses publicly accessible resources to investigate, visualize and call attention to otherwise unseen information about the worldwide military application of unmanned aerial vehicles. The exhibit features prints, computer installations, a model of a “drone identification kit”, and a “drone shadow” painted on an outdoor sculpture pad in front of the museum. The exhibit runs through July 7.
