ART AS SOCIAL PRACTICE - Technologies for Change

With a focus on contemporary socially engaged art practices, this exhibition demonstrates how artists use their creative practices to raise consciousness, form communities, create change, and bring forth social impact through new technologies and digital practices.

Curated by invitation to artist-authors included in burrough and Walgren’s book, Art as Social Practice: Technologies for Change, the show includes works by half of the artist contributors.

Works highlighted in this exhibition span collaborative image-making, immersive experiences, telematic art, time machines, artificial intelligence, and physical computing. These works reveal how the artists collaborate with participants and communities, and have found ways to expand, transform, reimagine, and create new platforms for meaningful exchange in both physical and virtual spaces.

The exhibition runs from January 20 to February 25, 2023.
