Camille will be participating in NEAT: New Experiments in Art and Technology at the Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM) alongside eight other Bay Area digital artists. NEAT looks at the rapidly evolving relationship between artists and technology almost 50 years since the seminal 1960s Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) set out to break down barriers between artists and scientists and expand the artist’s role in social developments related to new technologies.
Now, several decades later, NEAT shifts its gaze to the Bay Area, the contemporary hub for experimentation in digital art forms. The exhibition, curated by Chief Curator Renny Pritikin with consultation from artist Paolo Salvagione, includes several digital and robotic sculptures as well as works in light, sound, video, and more by three generations of practitioners working at the crossroad of contemporary art and tech including Jim Campbell, Paul De Marinis, Gabriel Dunne with Vishal K Dar, Mary Franck, Alan Rath, Paolo Salvagione, Micah Elizabeth Scott, Scott Snibbe, and Camille Utterback.
For more information regarding the exhibition, please visit the CJM’s website.
Camille will be participating in two public programs:
