Digital baroque + parafiction in Invisible Cities at Wallach Art Gallery, Apr 18 – May 20

, 18 April 2017

The Invisible Cities group exhibition is on at New York’s Wallach Art Gallery, opening April 18 and running to May 20.

Featuring 20 artists, the show includes work by Anthony Antonellis, Jillian Mayer, Carla Gannis, Lorna Mills and Indre Šerpytytė among others.

Borrowing its title from Italo Calvino’s 1972 travelogue, the exhibition sets out to explore the human condition, looking at “disparate themes and differing infrastructures, mediated systems, the parafictional, and the digital baroque, to describe the multiplicities of contemporary subjectivity.”

The gallery is part of Columbia University, where graduate students in the Modern Art: Critical and Curatorial Studies program, Page Benkowski, Taylor Fisch, and Georgia Horn have curated the exhibition in tandem with their research in ‘technological intermediaries.’

See the Wallach Art Gallery website for details.**
