This definitely looks like it's worth checking out!

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, November 14, 2008 8.00PM - 10.00PM

The Futurist-like newspeak that is often used to describe new media and web-based artworks is amusing, but limited. Technology is a tool, not necessarily a portal to another universe.

PREDRIVE: After Technology, a commissioned exhibition of new works by five international artists, explores themes of lo-fi digital effects/dysfunctions, ready-made cyber-kitsch, software aesthetics, and the performativity of digital environments in real space. The relationships between drawing and new technologies, performance and new media tools, as well as past and current technologies will be interrogated across the disparate, but related styles of artists Takeshi Murata, Brody Condon, Paperrad, Gretchen Skogerson, and Antoine Catala. The exhibition is curated by Melissa Ragona.
