The Montclair State University Galleries will present Tech/Know/Future/ From Slang to Structure from Sept. 14 to Dec. 11. This new exhibit will be the Galleries’ first in-person offering in nearly two years due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Tech/Know/Future/ is a critical response to technological systems within art addressing the issues of identity, history and abstraction, placing the viewer at the intersection of the past, present and future. Eleven diverse cross-disciplinary artists will use their creative practices to establish new relationships among technology, knowledge and time through augmented reality, artificial intelligence, sound, video, textiles and works on paper.
The exhibition is curated by Tom Leeser, Director of the Art and Technology Program and the Center for Integrated Media at CalArts.
Under the direction of newly-appointed Director Megan C. Austin, the Montclair State University Galleries’ revamped programming focuses on exhibiting new and timely work made by contemporary artists.
To celebrate the opening of the new exhibit, an opening event will take place Sept. 23 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The director and the curator will give a few remarks, along with Director Megan C. Austin, at 6 p.m.
The Galleries are open five days a week, Tuesday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. All exhibitions and programs are free and open to the public.
