A Look Back: A Survey of Previous Works
March 26 – April 21, 2020
In light of the closure of the gallery in response to COVID-19, the opening of Daniel Canogar’s exhibition, Billow, has been postponed. We want to take this opportunity to share previous works by the artist that have made a meaningful contribution to the landscape of new media art. Throughout his oeuvre, Canogar has sourced a wide variety of materials ranging from VHS tape, discarded cell phones, and flexible LED tiles to immaterial resources such as telephone signals, art history, and trending Google searches. The artist’s practice is intrinsically linked to the world of data, and how this invisible force negotiates its relationship with the physical world. Within these selected works, Canogar seeks to materialize the world of data and its implications through consumer electronics, public intervention, digital sculpture, and generative video. As a precursor to his upcoming show at the gallery please join us in revisiting this seminal group of works by Daniel Canogar.
