NewTown presents Convergences, a group exhibition that will open at the Armory Center for the Arts in the Mezzanine Gallery on Sunday, September 12th and will be on view through January 9, 2011.
An opening reception will take place on September 11th from 7-9 p.m. in conjunction with Steve Roden: in between, a 20-year survey curated by Howard N. Fox.
Convergences is curated by Richard Amromin, Artistic Director of NewTown. In one of NewTown's most ambitious gallery shows, eleven digital and media artists appropriate the ubiquitous tools of their media into cutting-edge, highly personal, curiously accessible experimental art forms.
Convergences seamlessly integrates media with sculpture and installation into an immersive experience. The exhibition will be a multi-station journey through a labyrinth of interactions, aesthetics and technologies, from garage pillaged elegance to experimental circuitry.
The exhibition will feature work by artists Nancy Buchanan and Ismael De Anda, Claudia Bucher, Robert Ladislas Derr, Heidi Kumao, Katja Loher, Lisa Mann, Anne Oren, Steve Shoffner, Rachel Siegel, Trixy Sweetvittles, and Laura Yilmaz.
