ON AND OFF October 6 – December 2, 2006 Opening Reception: October 5, 6-8pm
The Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery is pleased to present ON and Off a new show featuring an international group of contemporary artists.
Ten years since it emerged as a medium for contemporary art, the Internet and the work it inspires, is no longer confined by the browser window. The Web influences culture at large: it adapts to new technology, cultivates demographics, and evolves our cultural needs and norms. The works of Vuk Cosic, Lisa Jevbratt, Olia Lialina and Dragan Espenschied, Thomson and Craighead, YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES are testament to its expanding role in contemporary life.
Long working at the forefront of the medium, these artists explore the particularities of Web technology and its aesthetics and utility in projects that clearly transcend the specificity of "Internet Art." Internationally renowned and widely exhibited both on line and off these artists offer us compelling insights into our simple, everyday desire to be connected.
The Gallery is located at 601 W 26th Street, Suite 1240, New York, NY. The Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11-6.
