David Levine: Some of the People, All of the Time

Crowds matter—as visitors, as demonstrators, as social media followers. For every technique used to boost public participation, one is invented to discredit it—the protesters were paid, the followers are fake, the audience was packed with her/his friends. In David Levine's opening lecture for the exhibition David Levine: Some of the People, All of the Time, the artist considers the history, theory, and practice of the fake crowd and its implications for understanding our society and ourselves.

David Levine: Some of the People, All of the Time is organized by the Brooklyn Museum and co-presented with the Onassis Cultural Center New York as part of Birds: A Festival Inspired by Aristophanes.
