Jul 7 - Jul 7
Join us for an artist talk on Thursday, July 7th at 6pm MDT with current exhibiting artist Alex Linfield in conjunction with his exhibition W Y S I W Y G. Please register below to receive a meeting link.
What is so new about “new media”?
Are we once again faced with an epistemological and ontological crisis of the image due to digital methods of image making? Does new media bring new problems or does it simply breathe new life into some of our oldest anxieties?
About the artist:
Alex Linfield is a multidisciplinary artist and printmaker with a Master of Fine Arts from NSCAD University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Alberta. Raised in Treaty 8 territory (Grande Prairie, Alberta), Linfield worked in manufacturing and industry which sparked his interest in reproducibility, mass produced objects, and automated industrial tools. During his MFA he was introduced to thing theory (a philosophy of objects), media theory, and concepts surrounding communication which greatly influenced the exhibition “W Y S I W Y G.” In 2020 he moved to Mohkinstsis (Calgary) where he continues to develop his artistic practice.
