Screening series After Effects

Center for Contemporary Art in Estonia and Art in General (New York) invite to a screening series After Effects at Artis cinema which presents recent works by contemporary artists from New York.

The focus of the series is on the digital society and the effects of technologies to human nature.

After Effects is curated by the executive director of Art in General, Laurel Ptak, who in her selection of works has emphasized the dialectical tension in our current relationship to technology. While created in the name of progress to attend to our human desires, how do objects, interfaces, processes, aesthetics, and norms ultimately reshape these desires, and—in turn—reshape us?

The curator of the screening series Laurel Ptak will present a short talk on the selection of the artists.

Artists: Tyler Coburn, João Enxuto, Erica Love, Pedro Neves Marques, Wyatt Niehaus, Elizabeth Orr, Sondra Perry, Mariana Silva.

ENTRANCE: FREE

The event is supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia and Trust for Mutual Understanding.

Alongside Art in General’s exhibition programs that take place in New York and internationally, its public programs and publications examine critical and timely issues in artistic and curatorial practice. Offering support that will have a lasting impact on artists remains the cornerstone of its vision and programs.
