    Edited by Frances Guerin

    On Not Looking: The Paradox of Contemporary Visual Culture focuses on the image, and our relationship to it, as a site of "not looking." The collection demonstrates that even though we live in an image-saturated culture, many images do not look at what they claim, viewers oftentimes do not look at the images, and in other cases, we are encouraged by the context of exhibition not to look at images.
