The Hole Gallery, 312 Bowery
The Hole announces a group show of digitally-minded painting including both emerging and established artists working in a “post-analog” mode.
The long and complex shift in culture from analog media to digital media is the most significant transformation of our generation, and it has long-reaching and manifold effects that continue to permeate all modes of visual expression. In painting the effects have been slow to reverberate. “Inkjet on canvas” was the center of these discussions for many years; however, after Roberta Smith deemed the Wade Guyton show at the Whitney acceptable, everyone could chill out about whether paintings were composed in a computer and printed out or whether an actual paintbrush was wielded.
NIRBHAYA, Written & Directed by Yaël Farber, April 16th – May 17th, 2015.

The New Museum, 2015 Triennial thru May 24th
A signature initiative of the New Museum, the Triennial is the only recurring international exhibition in New York City devoted to early-career artists from around the world.
“Surround Audience,” featuring 51 artists, explores the effects of an increasingly connected world both on our sense of self and identity as well as on art’s form and larger social role. The exhibition looks at our immediate present, a time when culture has become more porous and encompassing and new considerations about art’s role and potential are surfacing. Artists are responding to these evolving conditions in a number of ways, from calculated appropriations to critical interrogations to surreal or poetic statements.
