Sedition has partnered with Eyebeam – Art & Technology Centre in New York to present The New Romantics Collection.
The collection includes exclusive artworks by artists in The New Romantics exhibition on view at Eyebeam from 17th April – 10th May 2014. Sedition will offer a selection of works by artists in the exhibition as digital limited editions that will be available for purchase on the site. The collection will launch on Sedition on 8th May 2014 and at the closing reception of the exhibition during FRIEZE New York. The reception will be on from 6-9pm at Eyebeam, 540 W 21st St. New York, NY 10011.
?The New Romantics Collection includes work by: Tim Berresheim, Ryan Whittier Hale, Claudia Hart, Sophie Kahn, Sara Ludy, Shane Mecklenburger, Jonathan Monaghan, Brenna Murphy and Katie Torn. The New Romantics is an exhibition exploring the ways in which contemporary artists using digital media engage the body, representations of nature, poetic irony, and expressions of individuality as originally expressed in 19th Century Romanticism. By drawing equivalences between then and now, this exhibition identifies a critical precedent for artists today that are responding to their ever changing technological environment. Just as the Romantics responded to the industrial revolution, this group of artists are similarly responding to the information revolution.
