Call for Digital Art Exhibitions Extended to September 7th

digital_call_flyer_2

This fall, we want to transform our domestic gallery space in order to showcase a wide range of digitally centered exhibitions.

Why digital in the home?

When currently thinking of how digital art is often presented in traditional white-cube settings, it seems out of place when displayed on a monitor, television, or other digital technology native to the home. The way we connect with computers is typically in a private space. Were interested in exploring how these exhibitions can walk that line of familiar interaction.

We plan to show works that can take advantage of the space that is our home or completely subvert that space into replicating a home page.  The intimacy created at SUB culminates in the conversations that happen with and surrounding the work.  That same type of intimate conversation also can occur online. The screens in a gallery can feel like a barrier or a space to become submerged.

interactivity?

Within this framework, we have the desire and potential to collaborate with artists to create an exhibition structure that would best suit inherently digital works. Whether that is through transferring them into physical objects or creating an entirely digital environment that best suits its format. We look forward to the utilizing  immersive environments for work that would otherwise be impossible in our gallery due to financial or spacial limitations.

We hope to collaborate on educational programming surrounding the exhibition that engages the local community with an artist’s interests. This can be anything from a workshop/lecture series to an informal discussion of YouTube videos or other media.

A Night With Hesse McGraw & Josh Shelton

By Melaney Mitchell

Saturday February 11th, Subterranean Gallery hosted the first of three Hot Tub Dialogue Lecturesfeaturing Hesse McGraw with moderator Josh Shelton. McGraw founded the Paragraph Gallery in 2004 and acted as a forerunner in revitalizing KC’s downtown through the arts. The space looked to transform the city, and the way in which art worked towards revitalization. He now works in a similar fashion as the Chief Curator of the Bemis Art Center in Omaha, Nebraska which focuses on works with a community impact. The evenings moderator, Josh Shelton is chair of the Steering Committee with Art Thru Architecture, a principal member of the architecture firm, El Dorado, and is on the board for the Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence, KS. McGraw and Shelton connect through their interest in the community, with Shelton’s teaching and studio practice at the University of Kansas School of Architecture, Design, and Planning. Shelton and his students work to develop architectural projects that have a direct engagement with the current urban context specific to each project. This is the same direction McGraw was heading in when he opened Paragraph Gallery. Continue reading
