Event Description

The Ammerman Center for Arts & Technology at Connecticut College has collaborated with Hygienic Art for an exhibition of works related to the symposium’s mission. Artists from around the world were invited to display their interactive installations, projections, videos, digital paintings, musical kinetic sculptures and more in a show that continues a relationship launched by donations Connecticut College made to the Community Foundation in 2012 in support of the Hygienic Galleries. The exhibition will begin with a gallery opening on Friday, Feb. 28, from 5-9 p.m. at the Hygienic Galleries, located at 79 Bank Street, and will run through March 15. For gallery hours, visit www.hygienic.org.

“This show presents a sampling of the myriad and exciting ways in which contemporary artists working with technology engage both time and place and delve into the intersection of the political and the personal,” said Andrea Wollensak, professor of art and an associate director of the Ammerman Center. “Through their innovative and articulate work, the selected artists draw us into the contemplation of fundamental questions about what it means to be situated by place, oriented by time and contextualized by identity.”

Libby Friedman, assistant director of the center, added, “This year's symposium is a true reflection of the collaborative nature of arts and technology, reflecting global and local partnerships. The symposium ties together the center, the College’s art departments and, this year in particular, the College and the Hygienic Galleries.”

Several artists will deliver short talks about their pieces on Saturday, March 1, from 12:30–1:30 p.m at the Hygienic Galleries.

Love the exhibit and particularly the Project Cabrini Green.  Audio of the various projects intermingles to create a unique soundscape in the gallery.

Nam June Paik would be proud.
