CURRENTS NEW MEDIA 2017

June 9-25, 2017

Virtual Object

Joshua Harker / Crania Anatomica

June 10 – August 11, 2016
Opening Reception – June 10 5-7pm

In conjunction with the CURRENTS New Media Festival, Virtual Object opens in form & concept’s upstairs gallery. The exhibition will showcase objects made or influenced by the exciting new processes emerging from the realm of 3D printing. form & concept was founded to “explore relationships between art, craft and design. Handmade and computer-made processes need not be at odds with each other,” said form & concept Director Frank Rose. “As technology increasingly expands into our lives, I think it is important to use these tools consciously and investigate what kinds of artistic communication may be possible. It’s equally important to recognize and support handmade craft practice, as a balance. They both emerge from humanity, after all!” Virtual Object was curated by Frank Ragano and Mariannah Amster from CURRENTS New Media Festival and Frank Rose at form & concept.
