This year's Newark Arts Festival presented a juried virtual exhibition set within a digital gallery evoking the arrival hall of The Newark Museum of Art. Recent works by twenty contemporary artists bring to life the show's themes of perception, access, and power within the context of art and technology. How does creative technology influence our perception? Is access enabled or disrupted by the convergence of art and tech? What are the dynamics of power, from both its literal sense (such as electricity which powers technology) and its figurative sense (such as the power of the people)?
Artists in the exhibition:
Clara Aden, Luis Alves, Jenna Arvelo, Ngu Asongwed, Mashell Black, Bisa Butler, Patricia Dahlman, Maurice Evans & Grace Kisa, Adebunmi Gbadebo, M Gosser, Kween Moore, Layqa Nuna Yawar, Nell Painter, Lillian Ribeiro, Danielle Scott, fayemi shakur, Armisey Smith, Onnie Strother, Kati Vilim, Adrienne Wheeler.
Curated by Marcy DePina, Executive Director, Newark Riverfront Revival; Lauren LeBeaux Craig, Director of Marketing & Artistic Initiatives, Newark Arts; and Tricia Laughlin Bloom, Curator of American Art, The Newark Museum of Art
