Exhibition Location: Museum

From iPhones to electronic billboards, screens saturate nearly every aspect of our daily lives. Screens: Virtual Material focuses on the increased presence of screens within contemporary sculpture and installation. The exhibition features work by artists who address how our vision, behavior, and beliefs are shaped by the ubiquitous nature of screens. Screens: Virtual Material addresses dimensions of desire, tactility, and confinement that are inherent to their function and aesthetics. From metal fences to monitors, these artists use wide-ranging screen-based materials in their work to reveal the porousness between our virtual and physical worlds. Artists in the exhibition include Brian Bress, Marta Chillindron, Penelope Umbrico, Matt Saunders, and Josh Tonsfeldt.

Organized by Sarah Montross, Associate Curator.
