CURRENTS 826 is Parallel Studios’ new, 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.
WINTER TALES features five previous Currents New Media Festival artists collected together to explore themes of the darkest quarter of the year. From a retelling of a classic winter witch tale through smell to an exploration of inner-turmoil projected into a miniature house and hospital, these works allow us to sink into the deepest reaches of our psyche during the cold season.
This show will run early December to late March, interspersed with several pop-ups and events.
Pop Up features:
January 18, 2 – 3 P: Sound performance, breath motors, by Telo Hoy
January 24, 6 – 9 P: OPENING RECEPTION– Emmett Palaima, Hammerhead Audio
February 28, 6 – 9 P: ARTIST TALK / CLOSING RECEPTION
February 29, 2 – 4:30 P: Intro to Circuits Workshop @ 826 Gallery with Emmett Palaima
