Panel: Scenes of the Crime

Nickie Phillips

Central Booking Presents - Conversations: Art & Criminology May 1.2015

By Staci Strobl

Art and forensic criminology intersect at the Manhattan gallery Central Booking, now featuring a show called "Scenes of the Crime" (through May 31, 2015) curated by Maddy Rosenberg and featuring at by Mary Ting, Travis Childers, Valerie Huhn, Max Marek and Joyce Ellen Weinstein, among others.

On May 1, artists Valerie Huhn, Mary Ting and I (a criminologist) gave a panel discussion on the exhibit, exploring fingerprinting as a tool of identification and also a beautiful mode of artistic production which can represent the "taking back" of one's identity from its legal or social operationalization; ancestral history and the impact of past political oppression on the present knowing of oneself; the limitations of forensic science to truly capture the experience of crime and its related intangible and emotional depths; and the occurrence of seemingly scientific analysis which serves to distort truths and point fingers at the wrong people.
