In the age of COVID-19, art is happening simultaneously everywhere, at all times, and nowhere. Our relationships to physical space, objects, and now virtual audiences are reconfigured and mediated by expansions and distortions in the digital realm: intimate glimpses into people’s homes and studios; new experimental possibilities and platforms; and the alternating affective charge and utter depletion of one too many Zoom meetings. Join Eben Haines (artist and founder/curator of Shelter in Place Gallery), Rashin Fahandej (transdisciplinary artist and assistant professor of emerging and interactive media, Emerson College, Boston) and Jimena Bermejo (performance artist, Mobius member and Director of Dance at College of the Holy Cross, Worcester) in conversation with curator Leonie Bradbury as they discuss the ways they are expanding artistic practice on digital media platforms.
This event is part of a weekly Summer Art Talk event series in August, hosted jointly by Northeastern’s Center for the Arts (CfA) and Area Code Art Fair. Please RSVP below in order to receive the Zoom access information.
