Thursday, March 17, 2016, 5-7 PM at the William Johnson Building

This exhibition is inspired by architect Keller Easterling’s 2014 book of the same name. Students of Joelle Dietrick’s spring 2016 advanced undergraduate art seminar Print+Media will present works that consider contemporary infrastructure, not just as the physical spaces we inhabit, but the extras—from ever-present mobile technology to ever-growing super-cities developed free trade zone policy.
These works will include time-based media and static artworks, that demonstrate fearless experimentation with both traditional media and digital tools. Influenced by debates surrounding the term post-internet, the works in this exhibition will be especially attentive to the ways in which images are now circulated. Of particular interest is the way in which digital representation of artworks are generally experienced before the works themselves.
