Contemporary Digital and Technological Art

Gallery Exhibition:

The Beachwood Center for the Arts, 25511 Fairmount Blvd.

Online Exhibition
May 1st, 2000 to April 15th, 2001 (minimum)

                 Digital prints, an interactive sound grid, neon sculpture, kinetics, generative music.  These are the arts at the turn-of-the-millennium.  Those familiar with the Internet experience
technological media all the time, but collectors, museums, and galleries are beginning to appreciate the growing use of technological media in the fine arts. The Beachwood Arts Council presents Through the Looking Glass, a survey of the creative potential within current technological advances.  The gallery show featured mixed-media 'paintings', CD-ROM installations, neon sculptures and interactive sound environments.  And with the closure of the gallery exhibition on April 30, the online portion of the exhibiton becomes central, located at http// where the works of over 80 of the world's most prominent gallery and Internet artists with noted cultural theorists are featured.  In addition, the online component includes a virtual recreation of the Beachwood Center for the Arts gallery and "exhibits", allowing visitors to see the layout of the physical exhibition.  

Additional plans may include an online forum to discuss issues of contemporary art practice in technological media, contingent on response to the exhibit.

Curator Patrick Lichty is a conceptual media artist and cultural theorist whose solo and collaborative works have been presented at the Walker Art Center, New York Digital Salon, ZKM Karlsruhe and the Whitney Biennial.  He brings noted artists such as Mark Amerika, Natalie Bookchin, Shu Lea Cheang, David Crawford, Jerry Domokur, and Roman Verostko with critics Steve Dietz, Alex Galloway, Lev Manovich, and Eugene Thacker to the Through the Looking Glass site, making it the first of its kind at the Beachwood gallery and the Cleveland area.
