October 23, 6-9pm
Reeves Theater
University of Tampa

At the intersection of art and technology the artists selected for CONNECT 2019 are experimenting with space, time, form and sound while re-examining the way we communicate ideas and tell stories.  

The eighteen artists represent thirteen countries and a variety of styles and processes. The results range from sensual abstraction to the strange visual effects of computer coding.  

The work addresses personal, social and political issues relevant to our times.  

Our common thread is an interest in expanding the concepts of art/film/technology and exploring the medium itself. We initially connected via Internet – Facebook / YouTube / Vimeo.

Most of us have never met in person but we have established a strong camaraderie through shared screenings around the world and/or our common love of the moving image.

San Diego Art Institute

Curated by Carlos Castro Arias & Sarah Trujillo-Porter, Deviate / Landscape revolves around contemporary approaches to artmaking that deal with the idea of landscape as a constructed and deconstructed space.

“The second half of our Focus on Locus double-header features two world premieres—exquisite expanded cinema/retinal rivalry pieces by the Mission’s own Greta Snider, plus a timely revival of her epochal 16mm diary Portland, train-hopping with Ivy McClelland and Iggy Scam!

Lana Caplan breaks away from her SLO college gig to unspool a NorCal debut, Patches of Snow in July (Hawaii volcano), as well as her earlier Maelstroms (Mexico border).

In his farewell appearance, long-lost ally Alex Coppola flies in from Philly to not only open the show, but close it as well, with his world-class World Music vinyl selections, set to an absolutely sublime sampler of mid-20C personal travelogues—Glimpses of the Global Southglorious Kodachrome shot in four sites, moving east around the planet—Hong KongTahiti, the Andes, and the Amazon.

As to marginal spaces in the US interior: Brea Weinreb debuts Framing History, a collective S8 remediation of home movies from Japanese internees in the AmacheColorado camp.

PLUS: Matt McCormick’s cautionary America Nutria, on a Southern mammal now munching on Coast rhizomes!”  …

The Future of History is the second in a series of two exhibitions that present works that pair art and technology in a thought provoking and visually engaging manner. Works that address, rather than use, technology on a conceptual level are featured as well. The Future of History features work by nine artists from as far away as Pakistan to local Boston based artists. From video montage saturated with contemporary media, to uncanny landscapes imaged with a scanning electron microscope, to delicate 3D printed butterflies the works in this exhibition leverage art and technology to delve into questions about culture and the environment.

Program description:
Image as author and performer, plunked onto a pedestal as though it were artifact. Examined with care through a microscope, crafted through filters, or sheathed onto a figure – witness the experience of filmmaking, presented in a luminous orchestration of malleable prosceniums.
