Artists in Conversation: Tech/Know/Future/ From Slang to Structure, 4 November | Event in Montclair | AllEvents.in Artists in Conversation: Tech/Know/Future/ From Slang to Structure
Artist Carla Gannis in conversation with exhibition catalogue essayist and Montclair State professor Charlotte Kent

About this Event

Tech/Know/Future/ From Slang to Structure is a critical response to technological systems within art addressing the issues of identity, history and abstraction, placing the viewer at the intersection of the past, present and future. Eleven diverse cross-disciplinary artists will use their creative practices to establish new relationships among technology, knowledge and time through augmented reality, artificial intelligence, sound, video, textiles and works on paper.

The exhibition is curated by Tom Leeser, Director of the Art and Technology Program and the Center for Integrated Media at CalArts, who brings together a group of innovative artists including: Morehshin Allahyari, Salome Asega, Nancy Baker Cahill, Stephanie Dinkins, Carla Gannis, Taehee Kim, LoVid, Amelia Marzec, Olivia Mole, Sondra Perry, and Casey Reas.



Tech/Know/Future is an examination of humanity’s particular moment in time amidst a newfound era of social and political upheaval. Humanity stands at a crossroads between its past attachment to technology’s promise and a precarious, vague future. The artists who comprise this exhibition are compelling and provocative: their work collectively maps future territories of uncommon knowledge, digitally reconstituted iconographies of the present, and short-circuited networks of the past.

The exhibition draws inspiration from the essay “Iconic Treatise Gothic Futurism” by the late writer, artist and musician Rammellzee, and the book After the Future by the Italian cultural theorist Bifo Berardi. Rammellzee designed a “technological language” to challenge the art world’s conventional approaches to image-making and writing. Berardi defines the future as a “cultural construction” of a materialistic, superficial twentieth-century society. He declares the mythology of the future is over, with the rise of global capitalism and its powerful “imaginary effects” to blame. Berardi’s post-future is a dematerialized, infinite present, a virtual space and time.
