In conjunction with the exhibition 1%: Privilege in a Time of Global Inequality, The Samek Art Museum is showing the work Unequal Scenes by Johnny Miller. The video is projected on the wall before the downhill side entrance to the main gallery, top floor, ELC.
“Discrepancies in how people live are sometimes hard to see from the ground. The beauty of being able to fly is to see things from a new perspective – to see things as they really are. Looking straight down from a height of several hundred meters, incredible scenes of inequality emerge. Some communities have been expressly designed with separation in mind, and some have grown more or less organically.”
— Johnny Miller, 2016
