Data Relations

Australian Centre for Contemporary Art
Saturday 10 DecemberSunday 19 March

Data Relations brings together artist-led projects that lyrically wrestle with some of the key issues and challenges of our contemporary data-driven society. The exhibition includes major new commissions and site-specific installations by Australian and international artists and collectives who critically and speculatively engage with the ways in which the data economy and related technological developments manifest in inter-personal and wider social relationships.

The exhibition title is drawn from a text by Ulises Ali Mejias and Nick Couldry in which the authors outline ‘the new types of human relations that data as a potential commodity enables’, which they surmise will, in time, ‘become as naturalised as labour relations’. Beyond the technological mirage of abstraction, false neutrality and obfuscation, and of more data as the answer to the mysteries of predicting the future, are human-led decisions, with all their attendant hierarchies, biases and existing relations.
