Southside Gallery

Oxford, MS

 

Opening Reception: Tuesday, September 22nd

Upside Presents, an affiliate of Southside Gallery, is pleased to announce Portable Nature Graphics (.PNG), a group show featuring work by Claire Whitehurst, Vivian Liddell, Alexander Valentine, Patrick Brien, and Jennifer Macdonald, and curated by Hannah Spears. The exhibition will take place in the upstairs gallery from September 15 to October 4, 2015.

Living in the 21st century means grappling with, whether consciously or unconsciously, the new technologies that are rapidly coming to define contemporary culture. Technology has initiated a vital reconsideration of the ways artists choose to represent form. The most relevant contemporary artists produce work that critically engages the visual culture that has emerged alongside new technologies such as 3D printing, increasingly sophisticated computer software, and notably, the internet, without necessarily making art about these technologies. The works selected for Portable Nature Graphics (.PNG) incorporate this new aesthetic sensibility to playfully re-imagine visual representations of natural form.
