- Analogital is an exhibition of international artists who engage with concepts generated from the transitional space between analogue and digital. Specifically the notion analyzes the forms that emerge from our culture’s conversion from film grain to computer pixel. However, more broadly the term identifies a perceptual evolution in the human experience and its mediation. In the mid-seventies at the University of Utah, innovators made breakthrough developments in early computer graphics and virtual designs like the “Utah Teapot”, experiments that would lead to the founding of Pixar and early pursuits of digital reality. Eventual media such as ASCII, ProTools, Nintendo Entertainment System, CAD, gifs, jpegs and above all the Internet opened a multiverse of possible ways to render, perceive and copy the world around us. Social networking interfaces, video game systems and reality television additionally provide new avenues through which communication, behavioral learning and interaction occur virtually or with mediated remove. Analogital is about artists analyzing this science-fictional relationship existing between technology and the human condition.

- Go West: Promised Land or Exile? - Exhibition Views
- Go West brings together twenty contemporary artists who offer up critical reflections on the West as both destination and destiny. These artists engage in an excavation of myths and ideologies embedded in the West, uncovering a range of motivations for westward movement over the years. For so many Americans, the West was thought to be, first and foremost, a place without a past. Go West suggests the ways in which the past always informs the present, and how the West as place of latent possibilities continues to figure in our cultural imagination. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.
