Learn about new media and installation art while working alongside practicing artist at the Currents New Media Festival in Santa Fe.This is a great opportunity to learn how exhibitions are planned, assembled, and presented. Join us in discussions about contemporary art practices and the future of new media.
Imagination sets the limit when approaching the design and communication of new concepts and ideas. Over the last century contemporary practices in art and design have transformed our concept of three dimensional space. The broad scope of this change is manifested in the myriad of new practices surfacing from contemporary art and theory. From site specific interpretive sites to art installations, from theaters to immersive environments, from outdoor interventions to digital spaces, the change is palpable and decidedly four dimensional.
