Im/material: Painting in the Digital Age

29 September - 17 November 2017

Sophia Contemporary is proud to present Im/material: Painting in the Digital Age, a group show of young contemporary artists investigating the nature of painting in today's digital age. Featuring eight international artists all under the age of forty - Martin Basher, Michael Bell-Smith, Ry David Bradley, Chris Dorland, Matthew Hansel, Anna Ostoya, Josh Reames, and Konrad Wyrebek - the exhibition reflects on the role of painting in a post-internet age where digital imagery is omnipresent. Through varying formal and conceptual strategies, the featured artists question the boundaries of painting at a time when software and machines can replicate the functions of easel, canvas, and paint, and contemporary imagery is increasingly viewed and consumed through computer screens and devices. The exhibition will open to the public with a reception from 6-8PM on Thursday, September 28, and will remain on view through November 17.
