August 20th – September 29th, 2018
Social Code is a juried exhibition, selected by Nichole Hickey, examining the relationship between art and social media as methods of making sense of the world around us. The theme of this show derived from an article titled “‘Social Media Art’ In The Expanded Field”, written by associate editor of Artnet Magazine, Ben Davis. Participating artists were asked to create an original piece of artwork in any medium that is related to the discussion sourced from Davis’ article. They were also given the option to print/recreate an original work or series of their work from a social media account. The goal should be a pursuit of new concepts and technologies, within technology/social media and art together, to fundamentally change how we perceive our experience and/or reality.
