Uncharted: American Abstraction in the Information Age

January 28 – June 19, 2020
Emily Lowe Gallery


Art, science, and technology have become increasingly intermingled. The distinctions between the disciplines are less clear, leading into unknown territory where all things are possible. The eight artists included in Uncharted: American Abstraction in the Information Age, drawn from the membership of the American Abstract Artists organization, explore some of the unexpected ways that math, science and technology are transforming our perception of the visual arts. Using a range of styles and materials, creating both two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and site-specific works, these artists investigate mathematical or scientific principles, in both explicit and implicit ways, and often use technology to produce their work. The works of art in the exhibition – by artists James O. Clark, John Goodyear, Lynne Harlow, Daniel G. Hill, Gilbert Hsiao, Irene Rousseau, James Seawright, and Patricia Zarate – can be difficult to categorize.

Funding has been provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
