Its a deficiency of the English language that theres no single word for morbid curiosity, the compulsion that makes humans slow down their cars as they pass accident scenes. Its the pleasure of the intensely familiar and the strangely unexpected that is the fodder for STARE, a collaboration between artists and photographers from the U.S., France, Germany, and Africa who aim for the singular moment when we cannot look away and we must continue looking. So, appropriately enough, one of the works is a portrait of Michael Jackson.
