Digital Matters! Eyebeam in ObjectsSeptember 3, 2015-October 31, 2015 At Upfor Gallery, Portland, OR
Since 1997, New York-based Eyebeam has actively provided support for and exposure of projects that critically engage with emerging technology and crack it open in unexpected ways. For this exhibition, Eyebeam’s Director Roddy Schrock has asked some of Eyebeam’s most forward-looking and adventurous artists working in myriad tech-related forms, from conceptual to sound arts, to render their work into objects. The resultant pieces challenge, quiz, and interrogate notions of materiality and its porous relationship to data and concepts. Featuring work by Chloë Bass, Zach Blas, James Bridle, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Zach Gage, Brian House and Addie Wagenknecht.
Presented with Upfor Gallery in Portland, OR.
