Invasion of the Drones

 

continued

gather information about forest fires, according to a recent spate of news articles.

Not all of the news is positive, though. Opposition to drones includes horror at civilian deaths overseas and concerns for privacy at home. The coming invasion of drones is a complex and controversial issue, making it an ideal theme for an art exhibit by Gallery Project, known for exploring culturally significant topics and unconventional ideas through art.

Featuring more than thirty-five regional, national, and international artists, Drones includes works that creatively consider drones and their applications, capabilities, and potential impact on society. The exhibit is curated by Gallery Project co-founders Rocco DePietro and Gloria Pritschet, whose nonprofit gallery occupied 215 S. Fourth Avenue for eight years before vacating last year. "We're changing, not closing," Pritschet told the Observer at the time, and change has indeed been liberating for this self-described "gallery of ideas." It's expanded its audience by organizing Drones as a dual-site exhibit: it opened in a large warehouse in Detroit's Eastern Market before moving to its current location at the Ann Arbor Art Center.
