Failing to Distinguish Between a Tractor Trailer and the Bright White Sky
James Bridle
April 22 - July 29, 2017

NOME is pleased to announce that the gallery will relocate to Kreuzberg in April 2017, after two years of activity.
The new space will open with a solo show by James Bridle.

In “Failing to Distinguish Between a Tractor Trailer and the Bright White Sky”, James Bridle (b. 1980, UK) explores contemporary technologies of prediction and automation as they settle into our everyday lives. Taking as its central subject the self-driving car, the works in the exhibition test the limits of human knowing and machine perception, strategize modes of resistance to algorithmic regimes, and devise new myths and poetic possibilities for an age of computation.

James Bridle is a British artist, writer and theorist based in Athens. His installations and works have been commissioned by the Serpentine Galleries, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Hayward Gallery, and The Photographers’ Gallery, London; FACT, Liverpool; the Istanbul Design Biennale and the Oslo Architecture Triennale. Bridle’s artworks have been shown at major international institutions including the Barbican and the Whitechapel Galleries, London; Baltic, Gateshead; KW, Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; Museum Angewandte Kunst, Frankfurt; ZKM Karlsruhe; MOMA, New York; National Arts Center, Tokyo.
