'Are You Sure You Are You?' - Opening Saturday April 11th


The gallery will be closed this week for the installation of 'Are You Sure You Are You?', a new group exhibition focusing on some of the most interesting contemporary artwork being produced with web and computer-based technology.

Where a first generation of tech-savvy artists in the late 90's often focused on grand multimedia presentations to show off the seemingly unlimited possibilities of this new frontier, the artists in 'Are You Sure You Are You?' represent a more recent trend toward a smaller scale, often self-effacing and humorous employment of their chosen medium. This work makes less of a 'statement' about the technology itself, and instead uses it as a platform for ever more inventive and thoughtful content.

Participating artists include: Cory Arcangel, Daniel Everett, Petra Cortright, Jeff Gabel, Guthrie Lonergan, Miltos Manetas, Angelo Plessas, Rafael Rozendaal, Andy Simionato, Tara Sinn, Mai Ueda, and Harm van den Dorpel.

'Are You Sure You Are You?'opens Saturday April 11th, 6-8pm, and continues Tuesday April 14th through Saturday May 16. More info here.
