Stimulus Response Affect: New Media Art in the Greater Lakes Region – prologue

SRA_FullColor Version_outlines-2

We are delighted to announce the opening of the exhibition Stimulus Response Affect, which explores varied ways artists engage the human body through sensorial, perceptual, chronological and spatial shifts, using sound and kinetic sculpture, interactive video, participatory games, augmented reality, social media and programmed software.

The Oakland University Art Gallery is hosting this event, co-curated by Colleen Ludwig and Vagner M. Whitehead. From October 16, 2015 to November 22, 2015, eleven works by fourteen artists from around the Great Lakes, in the U.S. and Canada.

These dynamic artworks activate the viewer as a participant, raising questions about self, relationships, surroundings and society, and provide the unique opportunity to experience and actively (re)consider the relevance and implications of innovative interactive contemporary art. With this in mind, we also invite you to attend a special symposium in conjunction with the exhibition the day after the opening.

The exhibition opens on October 16, from 6 to 8 pm.

On October 17, from 9 to 5 pm, featured artists will engage with the public in a four session symposium.
