January 27, 2020 – Stone Ridge, NY – SUNY Ulster’s Muroff Kotler Visual Arts Gallery will exhibit “Cultural Frequency: What It Means & What It Could Be Good For” from February 7 – March 20, 2020. The opening reception will be held on Friday, February 7, from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. and a live performance will take place on Wednesday, March 4, from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. and again from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Does Industry tell us what we need to use technology for or do artists tell us what it could be good for?
Using electronic signal, performance, video, virtual reality, and print, experimental media artists Jason and Debora Bernagozzi, Eric Souther, and Alan Powell answer that question by immersing the audience in an altered reality. Participating artist Alan Powell explains, “We live in an electronically simulated reality. We spend as much time in electronic space as we do in physical reality.”
In the piece entitled, ‘Glitch 2018’ throw away video is layered like abstract expressionism until it becomes its own surface and cultural reflection.
The live event is an audience-inclusive performance in conjunction with the work on display in the gallery that will include sound, video, and virtual reality to envelop the viewers in a freeform improvisational experience referencing culture, nature, biology, and politics.
The Muroff Kotler Visual Arts Gallery is located in Vanderlyn Hall 265 on SUNY Ulster’s Stone Ridge Campus. Its hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and closed on college holidays.
