Review of the exhibition Public Eye: 175 Years of Sharing Photography at the New York Public Library (NYPL), Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, on view from December 12, 2014 to January 3, 2016.
Published in Studija 100, no. 1 (2015): 72-77. In Latvian only.
Because I contributed to the making of the exhibition, this essay is more of an “insider’s” take on it than a critical analysis from an “outsider’s” viewpoint. Read more about my contributions to the exhibition at the end of this post.

Brief description of the exhibition:
I contributed to the making of the exhibition in two ways:
(1) I co-wrote several annotation labels under the guidance of the curatorial assistant, art historian Elizabeth Cronin.
(2) I contributed to the creation of On Broadway, an interactive installation that visualizes the digital traces of life in a twenty-first century city by compiling images and other data collected along the thirteen miles of Broadway that span Manhattan.
On Broadway is a project by Daniel Goddemeyer, Moritz Stefaner, Dominikus Baur, and Lev Manovich.
