Curated by Johannes DeYoung and Federico Solmi, Strange Loops is a group exhibition which explores psychological affect and the human condition expressed through instruments, systems, and objects of human design. Strange Loops continues an ongoing conversation begun by pioneers of Net Art and most recently explored in “Talk to Me” (2011) and “Thinking Machines” (2018) at MoMA. While these exhibitions surveyed the promises and processes of communication using digital and electronic media, they stopped short of addressing the anxieties and conflicting emotions brought about by rapid technological change. Strange Loops bridges a gap in the ongoing exploration of mass media’s hegemonic influence in an effort to create avenues for agency, plurality, and retort. Featured artists include: Sam Messer, Sarah Oppenheimer, Jon Kessler, Ana María Gómez López, Blinn & Lambert, Ilana Harris-Babou, Teddy Mathias and The Virtual Dream Center. Organized by Guest Curators Johannes DeYoung and Federico Solmi.
The exhibit is on display from December 14th, 2019 –– February 29th, 2020. An opening reception will take place Saturday, December 14th from 5-8pm. There will also be a curator talk that evening from 6-7pm.
