Please join us for a special panel discussion where we will be discussing the evolving technical, conceptual and theoretical merging of art and technology in art practice, including innovations in media such as painting as well as electronic media. Co-hosted by the San Francisco Art Institute Alumni Association, Space151 and WaldmanArts, SFAI Alum Beth Waldman will moderate a special panel discussion on Saturday, February 25th from 3-5pm. Joining us will be SFAI Associate Professor and Artist Meredith Tromble, Director of Fiction Science Gallery and Artist DC Spensley, and Head of Acquisitions at SFMOMA Maria Naula.
MANUAL DIGITAL features the works of eight national artists who have developed new visual languages by embracing digital tools in their primarily analog work. Part of a genre “The New Aesthetic”, coined by James Bridle, this exhibition presents artwork that is defined by or influenced by computer technology’s increasing role in daily life. The technologically informed practices of these artists reveal new potential meeting points about the time and space in which we equally reside. While the intersections of art & technology have garnered attention in the growing and varied genre known as new media, the practice of many contemporary artists relies on technology in ways that are more subtle to the eye and accessible to a wider public audience.
