Art on Hulfish | Screen Time: Photography and Video Art in the Internet Age
May 7 - Aug 7
The exhibition Screen Time features a global and intergenerational group of contemporary artists who explore the evolving role of video and photography in an era of digital communication and social media. Their work considers what it means to be an artist in a society where online culture is omnipresent and new platforms for self-expression are constantly evolving.
By turns wry, playful, nostalgic, and critical, these artists create thought-provoking works that consider the onslaught of information that characterizes our day-to-day lives. From the besmirched glamour of photographs by Marilyn Minter, evoking online makeup tutorials and fashion advertising; to Afrofuturistic eyewear designed by Cyrus Kabiru and constructed from found electronic waste; to Christian Marclay’s iconic montage highlighting the ubiquity of the telephone as a narrative device in classic film, the exhibition considers how the internet has transformed the ways we present ourselves and connect with others.
Screen Time was curated by Richard Rinehart, Director of the Samek Art Museum, Bucknell University, and Phillip Prodger, Executive Director, Curatorial Exhibitions. The works in this exhibition have been generously loaned from the EKARD Collection. The exhibition is toured by Curatorial Exhibitions, Pasadena, California.
