Rethinking MATTER: Digital Materiality
March 3 - APril 6, 2017
Rethinking MATTER explores the stuff of art; the materials that shape what art can be and do. With this ongoing exhibition series, curators Pamela Grombacher, Nana Bendix Hansen, and Sasha Rose Richter investigate the material turn in contemporary art, asking, how can artistic matter trace our shifting relations with the physical world?
Featuring digital paintings, weavings, and textiles, Digital Materiality questions both the innate physicality of matter and immateriality of code. Exhibiting artists use technology to either materialize digital aesthetics and processes or to ground digital works in the physical world - to give shape to code or codify physical matter. Together, the artworks featured in Digital Materiality reveal the ways in which digital processes and physical materials inform, inspire, and give shape to one another.
Opening reception: March 3, 5-8 pm
Round-table discussion: April 4, 5-6 pm
Curated with Sasha Rose Richter and Nana Bendix Hansen.
Supported by the Danish Art Foundation, Aarhus Municipality, and Aarhus Center for Visual Art.
