Currently on view at Eyebeam, New York is “The New Romantics,” 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 current information revolution. Curators Claudia Hart, Nicholas O’Brien, and Katie Torn have put together an exhibition that illustrates the diversity and complexity of contemporary digital production.
