Co-curated by Matthew Brower, assistant professor of Museum Studies, Digital Animalities is a two-venue exhibition of artworks exploring human animal interactions in an age of risk.

Digital technologies have been reshaping human understandings of animals and transforming the possibilities for human-animal relations. Artists have been at the forefront of exploring these challenges, using the languages and forms of artistic practice to stage, explore, and intervene in these emerging situations.

These works present a range of approaches to the themes. They offer models for understanding new possibilities provided by new technologies, critiques of implicit tendencies in the workings and organizations of these technologies, and classifications and frameworks for orienting ourselves to these new possibilities.

Digital Animalities: Mapping. John B. Aird Gallery, Oct. 30 – Nov. 23, 2018.
Digital Animalities: Rendering. Contact Gallery,  Nov. 1 – Dec. 15, 2018.
