Gallery Show :: Artistic Mediums II
January 24, 2011 to February 25, 2011
New Art Center, 61 Washington Park, Newton, MA 02460
An "art and technology" show that features the artwork of thirteen artists, this exhibition explores the idea of the artist as medium - one who channels ideas and expresses them through the manipulation of the "invisible", of electricity, ideas, even ghosts.
Artistic Mediums II is a collection of works exploring the idea of contemporary artists as mediums – individuals who channel ideas and express them through the manipulation of the invisible (electricity, ideas, perhaps even ghosts). Although nominally an “art and technology” show, not all of the work in the show actually involves electricity, sound, sensors, computers or visible technology. Some of the works are sculptural, some are photographs, some are video pieces, some invite audience participation. The connection between them is conceptual.
Artists in this collection include: Sarah Attwood, Ranjit Bhatnagar, Paul Cantanese, Ben Chang, Kim Collmer, Chris Harrison, Kelly Kirshtner, Jesse Kriss, Peggy Nelson, David Parker, Silvia Ruzanka, Andrew Sempere, Leslie Sharpe, & Dima Strakovsky.
