Please join us on the opening evening of “Stumbling Through the Uncanny Valley: Sculpture and Self in the Age of Computer Generated Imagery” for a roundtable with participating artists Ruth Patir, Neringa Černiauskaitė (Pakui Hardware), Santa France, and Ronnie Karfiol, and moderated by the exhibition curator, Chen Tamir. During the roundtable, the artists will discuss how they use technology and how it might affect their work. Furthermore, they will address questions such as: Is the content or form of the artwork shaped by its means of execution, or is it the technology that gives birth to the artwork? How has technology changed power dynamics in the field in terms of gender relations, if at all? And what can we expect as technology continues to evolve in lighting speed?
The event will be held in English and it supported by the Lithuanian Cultural Institute, Tel Aviv, and Kim? Contemporary Art Center, Riga.
