Spectrum Event

Let's Get Digital: Spectrum Presents a Conversation on Digital Art at the Met

Motion and Rest #2

Tickets: $15. Purchase tickets through Eventbrite.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's encyclopedic collection traces the evolution of art-making devices and technological advancements that have fueled artistic movements over the last five thousand years. From primitive tools to the printing press and the camera obscura, human beings have utilized the techniques at their disposal to make great works of art. Recently a new medium emerged in contemporary art that has found its way into galleries, auction houses, and museums—digital art.

Spectrum is proud to host a panel discussion at the Met on this topic, with the goal of offering a unique and important perspective on artworks made with the technology of our time. A Met curator, three artists, and a digital-art expert will share their work and thoughts on the topic. Beer, wine, and light snacks will be served.

*Must be 21 years old or over to attend this event.
