Meet the Artists.
A series of exhibitions showcasing compelling works and dynamic demonstrations by Kim Keever, select new media artists from the UK’s DAATA Editions, James Moore, Nate Boyce, MSHR, along with other selections from more exhibitors to be announced.
Former NASA thermal engineer Kim Keever felt caged in his painting career, so he innovated a new art form; his large-scale abstract photographs of pigments dropped in water reveal lush, ethereal fantasy-scapes that wordlessly communicate the relationship between art and science. Keever’s work is housed in many collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC, and the Jerald Melberg Gallery in Charlotte.
Daata Editions commissions artists digital media. In 2019 Daata is collaborating with Phillips NY, Black by Matte, NeueHouse NY, Vanity Projects NY & Miami, MOCAD Detroit, EXPO Chicago, Culture Labs, Daata Netherlands, Aalto Studios Helsinki, Everson Museum Syracuse, NADA Miami and much more. Limited edition artworks can be viewed and acquired as digital downloads.
James Moore is an interdisciplinary artist working to merge technology with art to create stunning works that push boundaries. Moore plays with themes of dystopia and futurism to build unnerving sculptural, installation, and mural artwork, which he can deploy across media and for various use cases. He has been a long-time participant and mover in the NYC event scene, often combining his talents and passions for sound, light, and design to complement parties and other events. He has previously completed work for Industry City, and other large scale venues in New York.
MSHR is the art collective of Birch Cooper and Brenna Murphy. Their work meshes digital sculpture, analog circuitry and ceremonial performance. The duo constructs and performs cybernetic compositions using synthesizers of their own design. For exhibitions, they install macro-arrangements of these sculptural instruments to create immersive light-sound-scapes. In their performances, they engage the systems through a series of unique interfaces.
