Art and Technology From Vermeer to Video

January 27, 2018 @ 9:45 am - 3:30 pm

Artists are more than inspired creators, they are also skilled technicians. They often embrace new technologies, transforming them into tools for artistic expression and expanding our understanding of how art is made and what “art” can be? This seminar, to be held at the North Carolina Museum of Art, delves into the relationship between technological advances and the artistic world, exploring how ideas, tools, and techniques have inspired artists, viewers, and conservators in the past and today. The seminar will end with a discussion of artist Sabine Gruffat’s video installation, A Kiss of the Earth, currently on display at the NCMA.
