Join us Saturday, March 16 at 4:00 pm for a Discussion and Book Signing with GRETCHEN ANDREW in conversation with curator Courtney Malick about her new book: "Search Engine Art".
Originally published in London with the Victoria & Albert Museum’s Digital Futures program, Search Engine Art is a 50-page book which showcases ten artists who investigate how the search engine, with its own authorities, biases, and visual tendencies, is worthy both of our aesthetic admiration and intellectual suspicion. The book and artworks within it are an investigation of the search engine as an artistic medium viewed through the lens of dependence, trust, and the social impact of technology.
