Pop-up exhibition at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago

The whole world experienced the struggles of life in confinement and how it boosted our relationship with the digital world. This collective experience marked a watershed in the way we experience life. WHERE WE EMERGE is a pop-up exhibition in which students of the Art & Technology Studies department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago reflect on this change in our society. Through installations, media work and 3D sculptures, the exhibition responds to this close relationship that has emerged with the digital world and how we deal with it while questioning its benefits and shortfalls. It is an invitation to think about our faculty to act and claim our right to participate in shaping the world we want for our future.

The LeRoy Neiman Center at SAIC will be hosting the exhibition for three weeks where people will be able to engage with the artwork on site. WHERE WE EMERGE will also have an online presence, where documentation from the physical show along with work from additional artists will be available for international audiences.
