Gallery 31 of the Corcoran College of Art + Design is pleased to announce the call for submissions for its new show dedicated to art and technology to be displayed in August 2012.
The exhibition is aiming to explore the phenomenon of innovative technologies in relation to contemporary art (or: the relation of contemporary art to new technologies).
Although the emphasis will be on exploring the art practices when a machine makes a vast amount of work, artists working in a way that opposes technology may also apply (we are interested in yarn bombing etc) This call seeks works addressing the recent tendency of personal fabrication of things, labs and the emergence of do-it-yourself communities.
The show is curated by the Corcoran College of Art + Design’s Department of College Exhibitions
