Post Physical: Visual Reactions to the Post-Internet Age features digital, audio, video, .gif, collage, painting, sculpture and IRL works, intended to propose options, problems, and questions, but offer no definitions, to what is Post-Internet Art. Though none of the artists in Post Physical claim to be Post-Internet artists, curator Nathaniel Smith features works of artists operating at a time when it is unavoidable to be associated with the Internet - whether that means being influenced by, spreading your work through, or rejecting it as a source and means all together.
Smith on what drew him to the work included in the show: "On a personal level, the term Post-Internet Art finally offered what I was searching for when attempting to describe the work I was drawn to and which felt most relevant. It is a vague term, like Post-War Art, but it allows for multiple interpretations and means of expression, all loosely tied to a very specific current moment of human existence.” The work in this exhibition explores the conventions of how we conceptualize the essence of what it means to live during the Internet age, and translates that into visual reflections of our culture.
Marisa Olson, the inventor of the term Post-Internet, has recently amended her definition as, “Post-Internet: the symptoms of network culture.” This exhibition will represent some of these symptoms. For more images of the work visit HERE.

I will be a Guest Artist on the panel for 'Painting and Adjacency' Courtesy of __________ on Wednesday June 18th at 6:30 at Jehra Patrick's studio. 

Minneapolis artist Jehra Patrick premiers 'Courtesy of __________,' a micro-exhibition presented in the artist’s studio space, culminating a year-long research project made possible by Artist Initiative grant funding through the Minnesota State Arts Board. 

Through this project, Patrick traveled to art museums in New York City, San Francisco, and Chicago, where she engaged in deep research within their digital and photographic archives with emphasis on those archival resources depicting past exhibition presentation preparation, and documentation. From these institutional archives, Patrick forms her own visual cache from reproduced and transferred files - making note of institutional record-keeping, artist trajectories, exhibition topics, presentation trends, and the various nature of peripheral activities towards exhibition production.

From this archive, the artist selects and edits images, honing in on interior compositions through digital cropping, reorienting and juxtaposing files, and layering documents. She then produces oil paintings after her ’tagged’ images likenesses, often incorporating qualities native to her photographic and digital sources. The final suite of painted objects is diagrammatic of visual metadata in museum architecture, art presentation, and traditional painting composition, often sighting ‘paintings within paintings,’ remarking on the referential history of Painting. Patrick initiated, and continues the series, as a pragmatic way to both capture and recall Painting’s lengthy past and promote possibility for its future within classical perimeters.

The exhibition is welcomed by an opening reception on Friday, June 6th, from 6-8 pm, and is accompanied by a public program series held in the artist’s studio on consecutive Wednesdays throughout June. Each program is formatted around a panel of fellow Minnesota painters in discussion with their peers and the public. These conversations are moderated by the artist and anchored by a recent text topical to Painting.
