The New Museum’s new exhibit, “Ghosts in the Machine,” highlights the relationship between humans, technology and art. Artists from more than 15 countries are represented from a time period of over 50 years. the exhibit takes up three floors and features optical illusions, computer-generated graphics, and recreations of works like Steve VanDerBeek’s CGI in “Movie Drome.”
Curator Gary Carrion-Murayari told the NY Post, “We were talking about things that have been overlooked in the 20th century. And we’re so dependent on our devices that they’ve become an extension of our bodies, but artists have been thinking about this [idea] already — works that express emotion about technology.” Admission is $10-$14, and free for those under age 18.
