it's the new everything Brian Alfred, Arden Bendler Browning, Trisha Holt, Phaan Howng

In the 40 years since Art in America announced TV as the next medium, or Andy Warhol that “it’s the new everything”, artists continue to confirm the prognosis of inside and outside as defunct categories in life and in landscape. In this exhibition, artists approach digital apertures and viewfinders as tools and points of view.
