CURRENTS 826 on Canyon Road

CURRENTS 826 is Parallel Studios’ year-round exhibition and experience space. In addition to the annual summer CURRENTS NEW MEDIA Festival, this permanent space will continue to increase the community’s interaction with new media arts in an accessible, experimental environment. CURRENTS 826 features interactive art and installations as well as a futuristic gift shop featuring objects fabricated using digital technology.

ON NOW! A World Contained: past & present works by Anne Farrell

A World Contained is a solo show featuring the work of CURRENTS artist, Anne Farrell. Anne was a CURRENTS New Media Festival exhibitor from 2002-2013, and then again from 2015-2019.

Anne will be showing a seriously sweet and motley crew of works, including two seminal and perhaps disquieting video installations, two striking series of images – one of large, scary and luscious prints and one of small, efflorescent images in response to the virus – as well as sculptural objects and shiny and trashy CONSTRUCTs.

The work includes a wide range of materials and and tracks body and mind over several years to the present.

Exhibition Dates: October 17 – November 29 2020
