PELHAM, N.Y. -- Pelham Art Center is holding a panel discussion on "TechNoBody," an exhibit that investigates the perceptions and experiences of the body in the technological world, at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 19.
The Pelham Art Center is located at 155 Fifth Ave. in Pelham.
Join curator Patricia Miranda and artists from the TechNoBody exhibition as they discuss technology and its relationship to and effect on the physical body in an increasingly virtual world.
TechNoBody investigates engaging scientific concepts in the ambiguous language of art. The artists examine and problematize the role of the machine for both our private and public selves, deconstructing our tacit agreement to its terms.
Attendees will learn more about how the artists employ a diverse range of contemporary artistic tools, from cyberbodies, avatars and selfies to facial peel and simple paper and pencil. The panel discussion is being held to support TechNoBody, a contemporary group exhibition which includes video works, drawings and sculpture that alternately balance and question the hope and desire of the immaterial, extended, digital body against the realities of the physical, fragile and ephemeral body.
The exhibition is on view through Saturday, March 21.
Artists include Christopher Baker, Carla Gannis, Claudia Hart, Cynthia Lin, Joyce Yu-Jean Lee, Laura Splan, and Victoria Vesna. Admission is free.
