Patatap Part of Liminal Territories
Patatap part of group show at pal projects in Paris, France
Starting with the vernissage (public opening) on October 5 and running until November 20, Patatap will be on display with other illuminating works of new media art at pal project, a contemporary art gallery off of Boulevard Raspail in the sixth arrondissement of Paris, France.
While I will not be present for the opening, I am extremely excited for this opportunity to show my work in the city where I earned my new media degree. Just down the street on Rue de Fleurus is where I had my first studio apartment. Beyond the sentimentality of the location, I am excited in large part due to the debut of curator Filippo Lorenzin. He was my “History of New Media” professor at Paris College of Art and is a longtime fan of Patatap. He emailed me shortly after I released the website in 2014 and asked numerous questions about how it was made. It is an honor to be part of this group exhibition and to have artistic discourse over seven years.
Liminal Territories confronts current trends in digital art from the long storied perspective of art history. All the work in this show has strong inspirations and references to Fine Arts over the ages. More information including a catalog of the exhibition and RSVP details are available in English and French.
If you go, please send me a picture. I would love to see how the gallery looks,
