Im/material: Painting in the Digital Age explores how the rise of the Internet and the constant consumption of online images has influenced painting through the work of eight young artists.

About

Im/material: Painting in the Digital Age is a group show of young contemporary artists investigating the nature of painting in today's digital age. Featuring eight international artists all under the age of forty - Martin Basher, Michael Bell-Smith, Ry David Bradley, Chris Dorland, Matthew Hansel, Anna Ostoya, Josh Reames, and Konrad Wyrebek - the eighteen works in the exhibition use painting as a way to draw attention to and reimagine digitally produced images, slowing them down to examine their meaning and impact, both in relationship to art history and our daily consumption of them. Subjects explored in the exhibition include imagery related to advertising, branding, and corporate culture; the blurred boundaries between the handmade and the technological; and the visual manifestation and capturing of speed as images move through digital frameworks. Im/material will be on view from September 29th through November 17th, with a private view on Thursday September 28th from 6-8PM.
