Subscribers to Humanist in the Toronto area might be interested in this
exhibit at Inter/Access.

https://interaccess.org/exhibition/scaffolds-i-can-no-longer-see

_Scaffolds I can no longer see_ reveals the unseen algorithms that govern
digital infrastructures. Through this group exhibition, curators Sophia
Oppel and Philip Leonard Ocampo highlight the coercive power hidden
beneath the seamless aesthetics of consumer devices and online interfaces.
Artists Sarah Friend, Guillaume Pascale, Shaheer Tarar, and Sahar Te
challenge the supposed neutrality of digital platforms that treat user
data as a commodity. By manipulating the tools of surveillance capitalism,
their works seek to restore agency to the user.
