School of Visual Arts presents “Hi Rez / Lo Rez,” an exhibition of work by BFA Fine Arts students. Curated by department chair Suzanne Anker, “Hi Rez / Lo Rez” is on view Saturday, September 26, through Saturday, October 17, at the SVA Flatiron Gallery, 133/141 West 21st Street, New York City.
By bringing together handmade art objects with their technological “others,” “Hi Rez / Lo Rez” asks how traditional forms of art making are being expanded through technological intervention, and what skill sets are necessary for creating art in the 21st century. Students collaborated, via digital exchange, with the Brno University of Technology in the Czech Republic to create the works on display, which include digital photography, microscopic photography, digital embroidery, collage and paintings, some of which were made from bacteria.
Participating artists include Martica Apicella, Dominica Battaglia, Alex Bustamante, Andrew Cziraki, Tori Deetz, Nicasio Fernandez, Tiffany Freeman, Adebunmi Gbadebo, Joy Horden, Yoon Jung Lee, Victor I. Taboada Urtuzuastegui, J.C. Villalon, Amanda Wu and Lauren Ziroli.
