This Saturday, come check out a cutting-edge group show at the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center. This is a public event where – for once – it is perfectly acceptable to pull out your Smartphone at any time and interact with the show, a concept that the fabulous Pinkline describes in their article.
Here’s the official info:
The boundaries between artist, consumer and curator have officially been blurred. Rather than argue against the presence of personal technology in the gallery, this exhibition, Like. Comment. Share., explores the interaction between art and social media. Take the picture, tweet a response, “like” the exhibition. #LikeArt
Like. Comment. Share. opens at the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center on Saturday, April 28, running through Sunday, May 20. The group show will feature 18 artists, chosen by 18 curators who are enrolled in American University’s Curatorial Practices graduate course. Each curator was allowed to bring in his or her choice of artists, resulting in an eclectic, thought-provoking group show featuring a wide diversity of mediums including sculpture, painting, animation and digital photography.
