This winter, 14 arts organizations throughout Greater Boston are partnering to present an ambitious, region-wide exploration of art and technology. This exciting cultural collaboration will offer a range of exhibitions, performances, film screenings, and other programs all exploring the relationship between art and technology in celebration of the Boston area’s rich history of technical innovation, and its overlap with art.
Touching on issues of privacy, community, networks, identity, innovations, surveillance, and more, the collaboration is organized in conjunction with the exhibition Art in the Age of the Internet, 1989 to Today, opening February 7 at the ICA.
Art in the Age of the Internet examines how the internet has radically changed the field of art, especially in its production, distribution, and reception. The exhibition is comprised of a broad range of works across a variety of mediums—including painting, performance, photography, sculpture, video, and web-based projects—that all investigate the extensive effects of the internet on contemporary art and culture.
Partner organizations include Berklee College of Music, Boston Cyberarts, Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Harvard Art Museums, Harvard Film Archive, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, MIT List Visual Arts Center, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Museum of Science, Boston, Peabody Essex Museum, Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University, and Tufts University Art Galleries.
