LOCATING FORM IN VIRTUAL SPACES: A Painting & Digital Media Exhibition at the Nook Gallery Los Angeles

Opening May 11    2:30- 5:00 PM

May 11 – July 8

Curated by Janna Avner and Richelle Gribble

Locating Form in Virtual Spaces features paintings and prints by Ian Hagarty, Jacqueline Bell Johnson, Eric Dwight Hancock, Kate Parsons, Janna Avner, and virtual reality and video art by Atley Loughridge and Kristin McWharter. The themes of this exhibition consider how form is constructed in virtual reality and digital renderings to probe the imagination and elicit emotional and psychological responses. The effect of this curation is technical: paintings may glow like computer screens and computer screens may glow like paintings. Event Information.
