Render

New Construction in Video Art


California Museum of Photography

February 4 - April 21, 2012


Opening Reception

Saturday, February 18, 2012, 6pm - 9pm


Render explores the moving image as a physical and phenomenological processes in contemporary art. It examines the intermingling of the materiality of video and technology in which artists use pixels and particle units from film to produce a new layer of mediated work. Commonly used in computer editing programs, 'rendering' is a required process to generate and solidify special effects and transitions. Consequently, the works in the exhibition apply artistic uses of translating visual data from analog to the digital, and vice versa. The exhibition will be presented on the main floor of UCR/California Museum of Photography and on the Culver Center of the Art's Digital Mural screens on the building's facade that faces the pedestrian mall. Curated by Jennifer Frias, associate curator, Sweeney Art Gallery; Jeff Cain, exhibition designer, ARTSblock; and Georg Burwick, director of digital media, ARTSblock, University of California, Riverside.
