The Visual Arts Centre of Clarington is pleased to present Utopia! Who’s Listening Now an exhibition by artist, Anne O’Callaghan.

Anne O’Callaghan is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice incorporates a wide range of media, including text, and photo-based works, artist books, video, sound installation, and sculpture. For over three decades, O’Callaghan has devoted her artistic practice to the exploration of art and politics, memory, and the ways in which artists can effect change.

Utopia! Who’s Listening Now is an exhibition made up of a series of installations through which O’Callaghan responds to political events in our recent history. Her work aims to explore, subvert, and deconstruct the ways in which governments, police, institutions, and corporations have developed and employed methods of surveillance, communication, and propaganda.
