Crosscut’s third curated Arts Salon series will examine the intersection of art and technology with an emphasis on the democratization of art. How does technology impact what kind of art is made? How do social media websites (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) affect art, its representation and the amount of users looking at it online? What about online art sites? What is their role in shaping how art is sold, who sells it and what art becomes popular?
The evening will feature displays, performances, and presentations by multiple artists that work within art and technology.
When: Tuesday, September 20th | 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
Where: Galvanize Seattle | 111 S Jackson Street
