ATNE Salon: Motion in Fine Art

Join Art Technology New England for our kickoff to an informal series of discussions on art/technology topics. At each event, we’ll start the discussion with a presentation by an expert in the field who’ll provide context and raise provocative questions. Next, with the help of a moderator, we’ll turn the debate over to you. Share your ideas, discover new ones and participate in analytical discourse and artistic cross-pollination.

For the first salon, ATNE’s Dan Hermes, artist and writer, presents from his forthcoming book called Moving Paintings. Video and time-based art will illustrate topics, theory, and history of motion in fine art. The floor will then open to general discussion: How does time play into visual art? How do we discuss, evaluate, and enjoy visual artwork which changes over time? How does motion work in your own art, in art you see, and in art you own or curate? What is the background behind time-based art? What are its defining principles? What are the current markets for such art?

Attendees will explore these topics of motion in fine art:

  • examples of effective use
  • technologies and techniques
  • history and aesthetic principles
  • art markets and distribution
