SHANGHAI - MARCH 26TH 2021 - Anomaly Shanghai has partnered with the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, to present the ITP Spring Show ‘Etude’ at Anomaly OPEN, Anomaly’s cultural event space.
ITP is a two-year graduate program located in the Tisch School of the Arts whose mission is to explore the imaginative use of communications technologies, and how they might augment, improve, and bring delight and art into people's lives. It is home to artists and tech stars like Daniel Rozin, Marianne Petit, Daniel Shiffman, and Tom Igoe.
This year, the ITP Spring Show will for the first time open in Shanghai, showing creative interactive projects of students from all over the world.
The exhibition probes key questions on technology and society in the post-Covid-19 era: how do we re-define the concepts of “boundary” and “distance”? When thinking about the interpersonal, inter-community, and inter-regional relationship, what challenges are we facing, and what transformations are we experiencing? Visitors will have the opportunity to interact with the artists’ works, feeling both the power and the intimacy of technology.
“After a challenging year, we are glad to be able to give the students of ITP an opportunity to present their works IRL,” said Richard Summers, Partner at Anomaly Shanghai. “As an innovative and entrepreneurial company, we are always looking for ways to inspire ourselves, and the communities and clients around us. These students’ works give us a glimpse of what the future may hold.”
The one-month exhibition presents interactive artworks, video art, painting, photography, illustration, and creative collage pieces created by over forty artists, exploring the future of interactive art through experimental new media types.
This exhibition continues Anomaly’s ongoing commitment to culture. Previous exhibitions at Anomaly OPEN have included local artist Nathan Zhou, the world renown Magazine B; and The Shophouse in partnership with MINI, among others.
