WaldmanArts Presents "Manual Digital" Opening tonight in San Francisco at Space 151. Tonight

Opening tonight in San Francisco at Space 151.


WaldmanArts Presents "Manual Digital"


Curated by artist, art consultant and independent curator Beth Waldman, “Manual Digital” features the works of eight national artists who have developed new visual languages by embracing digital tools in their primarily analog work. Part of a genre The New Aesthetic, coined by James Bridle, this exhibition presents artwork that is defined by or influenced by computer technology’s increasing role in daily life. The technologically informed practices of these artists reveal new potential meeting points about the time and space in which we equally reside. While the intersections of art & technology have garnered attention in the growing and varied genre known as new media, the practice of many contemporary artists relies on technology in ways that are more subtle to the eye and accessible to a wider public audience. “Manual Digital” will be on exhibit at Space151 from February 23rd through March 25th, 2017. Join us for the opening reception Thursday, February 23rd from 6-8pm, a panel discussion co-hosted by SFAI Feb 25th 3-5pm and and a celebratory closing reception Saturday, March 25th 6-9pmPress Release.
