Event description
Join us for a virtual opening reception on Zoom for the Derfner's first virtual exhibition "F11: Digital Paintings for Full Screen"

About this Event

F11: Digital Paintings for Full Screen marks the first virtual exhibition presented by the Derfner. “F11” refers to the function key that opens full screen viewing in most internet browsers. In the Covid-era when many art spaces are closed or open at limited capacity, online exhibitions have become ubiquitous. Such experiences include galleries that have been painstakingly photographed and recreated into 360-degree navigable spaces, fictional rendered environments where artwork has been “installed” virtually, social media as a curation space and websites that feature high-resolution images to showcase artworks that exist as physical objects. “F11” inverts these practices: It features digital paintings best exhibited in a purely virtual space where the optimal way of viewing the work is on-screen.

The 10 artists in this exhibition live and work in different places in the United States and internationally. They employ distinct digital strategies to create their works, which are linked by the exhibition’s conceptual framework, not thematically. The exhibition examines the significance of digital painting in this moment, especially when reliance on screens is more prevalent than ever before.

Featuring Adam Blitz, Elaine Chao, Luise Eru, Donald Hargrove, Samhita Kamisetty, Annie Lee, Carlos Torres Machado, Collin Pollard, Polina Protsenko and Stefanie Wolfson.

Zoom link will be included in the confirmation email.
