Virtual Views: Digital Art from the Thoma Foundation

Virtual Views explores the growing importance of electronic media in contemporary art as seen in the work of artists who are pioneers in the use of LEDs (light-emitting diodes), LCD (liquid crystal display), and computer-generated imagery. The exhibition features 13 works each using a variety of electronic hardware and digital technologies that draw inspiration from the natural world and human perception.

The artists include: Jim Campbell, Daniel Canogar, Craig Dorety, John Gerrard, Matthew Kluber, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Manfred Mohr, Anne Morgan Spalter, Alan Rath, Daniel Rozin, Björn Schülke, Jennifer Steinkamp, and Leo Villareal.

Artworks in the exhibition were selected from the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation’s extensive collection of Digital Art, which spans the history of the medium from the 1960s through the present, including software-based electronic light art, interactive and internet art, and other forms of contemporary art that engage technology. The Thoma Foundation recognizes the power of the arts to challenge and shift perceptions, spark creativity and connect people across cultures.
