Event description

Description

California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks hosts the West Coast premiere exhibition of Strings: Data and the Self, featuring groundbreaking new media artists who challenge "traditional" notions of art making.

Curators Joel Kuennen and Riccardo Zagorodnev have culled together works that examine the pervasiveness of big data and how it increasingly influences our identity and determines our behavior. The work presented in this exhibition -- from digital art to video game art and beyond -- is challenging, sophisticated and provides a perfect place in which to reflect and discuss how data affects who we are.


FEATURING:


Heather Dewey-Hagborg is a transdisciplinary artist and educator who is interested in art as research and critical practice.

Branger_Briz is a full service digital agency and lab made up of artists, strategists, educators and programmers bent on articulating contemporary culture. Based in Miami FL, Chicago IL, and Cali, Colombia, they create work that provides context and perspective on the misunderstood aspects of the digital landscape.

Amanda Turner Pohan received her BFA from The School of Visual Arts and an MFA from Hunter College. Pohan is currently working on The Linqox Criss Cycle, a five-part series of installations detailing the journey of Second Lifeavatar Linqox Criss as she slips between digital and physical embodiment.

Jennifer Chan is a Canadian video and media artist and curator based in Toronto. Her work addresses internet pop culture, specifically the representation of masculinity and the various constructions of femininity under the male gaze.
