As social, geo-social and mobile media render the intimate public and the public intimate, what is the impact on art practice and politics? Curated by Utopia—a roving visual arts project for the Asia Pacific region—Intimate Publics is an exhibition of video works that delve into the revelatory world of intimacy within public spaces, probing the effect that the ever-present social media has on our public expression of emotion. Each Utopia collaborator proposes two single-channel video works for inclusion in a program of moving images.
