Curated by Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell: "In the world of retweets, regrams and now reactions, we are ever constant consumers of material culture in the ever-expanding chasm of the internet, including art. As the internet continues to grow, taking root in and changing all aspects of life, so changes art. Where high artistic achievement was once defined in strictly academic terms, now we see a democratization of the field throughout all the absurd realms of the World Wide Web. So what does it mean to be an artist in the age of the internet? Eight artists explore the organic, commoditized, and fabricated experiences where the lens of various web-based happenings, engagements, and absurdity play a major role." Also including work by Rachel Bone, Nancy Daly, Michelle Herman, Dina Kelberman, Lindsay McCulloch, Jenny Walton, and Stephanie Williams.Take Note, Gustein Gallery, Savannah College of Art and Design - Savannah, GA: February 2-April 10, 2017.
Curated by Amanda York and Ben Tollefson: "An exploration of the possibilities of text-based artistic expression. Using a variety of media, artists engage words and letters for formal, narrative and archival purposes that undermine the standardization of language. Created during the last five years, the works of art recontextualize familiar text and symbols to reconsider meaning in various forms of visual communication." Also including work by Erica Baum, Alex Gingrow, Meg Hitchcock, Nathaniel Russell, and Todd Schroeder.
