Artist Dave Derington will explore Electric is the Love, the ninth installment of the Kranzberg Exhibition Series at Laumeier Sculpture Park which features artists from the St. Louis region, at 1 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 10, 2011 in the Museum Galleries.
The exhibition includes the work of collaborative architects, a sound artist, a super gamer and a sci-fi sculptor. Recognizing how personal devices, mobile networks and surveillance technologies now unite us by creating an inexorable conduit that organizes our contemporary lives, the indoor galleries at Laumeier Sculpture Park has been transformed into a space to engage in a conversation about the attraction to digital, electric and mechanical practices and to explore the lure of interactive environments.
The exhibit is on display through January 22, 2012 and includes new works by Derington, Eric Hall, Christopher Ottinger, Yo_Cy (Christine Yogiaman and Ken Tracy) and Robin Assner and Adam Watkins.
“In this exhibition, varied queries about the merging of the physical and digital worlds are approached in unique ways, allowing the viewer to digest, interact and ultimately embrace our ever-changing world,” said Dana Turkovic, Laumeier’s Curator of Exhibitions. “In response to ongoing technological and cultural shifts, art continuously evolves, providing another medium in which to improve our capacity to adapt.”
Laumeier Sculpture Park is located at 12580 Rott Road in St. Louis County.
