Through January 6, 2019
Although the Hairy Who chose to exhibit together, they were six individuals with their own personal, chiefly figurative vocabularies. They each radically manipulated source material collected from everyday life—including advertisements, comics, posters, and sales catalogs—with technical virtuosity. Their sense of humor embraced idiosyncrasy and spontaneity with wordplay, puns, and inside jokes that often belied the transgressiveness of their subject matter. Ambiguous, provocative, but also strategic, their work transmitted progressive ideas that challenged prevailing notions of gender and sexuality, social mores and standards of beauty, and nostalgia and obsolescence.

We showcase a family of common failures of state-of-theart object detectors. These are obtained by replacing imagesub-regions by another sub-image that contains a trainedobject. We call this “object transplanting”. Modifying animage in this manner is shown to have a non-local impacton object detection. Slight changes in object position canaffect its identity according to an object detector as wellas that of other objects in the image. We provide someanalysis and suggest possible reasons for the reportedphenomena.
