The Electronic Art Gallery’s mission is twofold. Firstly, the gallery is a venue for professional and student artists to showcase their work. The gallery will focus on artworks that explore the wide-ranging mediums and concepts found under the umbrella term of “digital art.” Secondly, the gallery’s offerings are intended to demonstrate a dedication to the cultural enrichment of Colorado State University’s students and the local Fort Collins community.
The Electronic Art gallery encourages experimentation through the presentation of works in a wide variety of formats. This can include but is not limited to exhibitions, performance, outreach, and related educational programming.
ELECTRONIC ART ARTIST LECTURE SERIES:
Thanks to a generous Lilla B. Morgan Grant and the support of the Department of Art and Art History, the Electronic Art Area will be hosting a lecture series for the 2018-2019 calendar year!
Electronic Art Lecture Series:
Laura Hyunjhee Kim – Tuesday, February 5th @5pm, F101, Visual Arts Building
Laura Hyunjhee Kim is a Korean-American multimedia artist who blends and bends pop cultural tropes and creates digitally fabricated experiences that respond to networked twenty-first century sentiments. In recent projects, she thematically researches on emerging trends and patterns in consumer-grade technology to speculate on the underlying (non)human dreams and desires.
Kim has shown work in on/offline exhibition spaces, screenings, and festivals around the world recently including the Supernova Digital Animation Festival, Electrofringe, Harvestworks and the Streaming Museum, Made in NY Media Center, Centro Cultural São Paulo for The Wrong-New Digital Art Biennale, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Super Art Modern Museum (SPAMM). She was also a recipient of the inaugural ArtSlant Award in New Media and an artist in residence at the Internet Archive and the Korea National University of Arts.
Kim received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and is a PhD student in Intermedia Art, Writing and Performance (IAWP) at the University of Colorado Boulder’s College of Media, Communication and Information. She is the Founding Director of SEICA Human Interaction Labs.
Stacey Stormes – Wednesday, March 6th @5pm, Visual Arts Building
Exploring body, consciousness, and connection to environment, Stacey Stormes works across mediums including video, installation, gif, and photography to create visual metaphor. Her research and writing delves into art as social practice as well as theories surrounding the mediated body (work that exists within intersections of body and new media art). She recently developed an online course on Arts of Resistance for USF and has presented her research on the mediated body in Brazil for the Computer Art Congress 4. She earned her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the University of South Florida and Masters of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts and Media from Columbia College Chicago. She is a member of the faculty in the Arts Department at Aurora Community College where she teaches Digital Photography.
Siew Wai Kok – Lecture on Wednesday, April 10th (place TBD, will not be in art department since communications and ethnic studies are helping promote. )
Screening of Siew Wai Kok’s work KLEX in Denver at Alamo Drafthouse in the 12th, time TBD
Siew‐Wai Kok has a deep passion for the avant-garde, improvisational and experimental arts. She feels that it is important to embrace the variety of unique expressions in the arts, especially not to discriminate works that are lesser known or that challenge conventional codes and expectations. After moving back to Malaysia in 2005 and realizing the lack of alternative voices in the local art scene, Siew-Wai has decided to devote her time and energy mainly as an artist-organizer. She set up SiCKL (Studio in Cheras Kuala Lumpur), an alternative artist collective with her peers, and organized many DIY video screenings and music events since then. She was the co-festival director of Sama-sama Guesthouse Mini Alternative Art Festival 2010, a no-budget art festival; and co-curator of the music programme in Notthatbalai Art Festival 2007. Siew-Wai’s most committed role is as the co-founder, co-curator and festival director of the Kuala Lumpur Experimental Film, Video & Music Festival (KLEX) since 2010. Through KLEX, she is actively connected with the international experimental art communities, and has shown her curated screening programmes in Belgium, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam and USA.
In addition to her curatorial work, Siew-wai has shown videos, performed and presented her works in Asia, Europe, Canada and USA, including Nimman Film Festival (Thailand), Singapore International Film Festival, Asian Meeting Festival 2015 (Japan), RRRec Fest (Indonesia), Asian Film & Video Art Forum (South Korea), Asian Experimental Video Festival in Hong Kong, Video Art Attack! (Belgium), International Film Festival Rotterdam, Les Rencontres Internationales (France), solo exhibition & performance in Beyond/In Western New York Biennial (USA) and many more. Siew-Wai is currently teaching at the Faculty of Creative Multimedia, Multimedia University, Malaysia.
