Omar Chacon at the Children's Museum of Art

December 19, 2014 - Thatcher Projects

Thatcher Projects is pleased to announce the presentation of two large paintings and one work on paper by gallery artist, Omar Chacon at the Cynthia C. Wainwright Gallery of the Children’s Museum of the Arts in New York, on view January 22- May 3, 2015.

Curated by Children's Museum of the Arts Director of Fine Arts, Jil Weinstock, the exhibition, titled PIXELATED: SUM OF ITS PIECES, brings together emerging and mid-career artists whose work explores different means of perception. For better or worse, our lives are increasingly played out on a screen. From checking directions to playing a game on the latest bestselling app, digital technologies are a part of our everyday lives. Just as individual “pixels” are pieced together to create a larger image or message, this exhibition brings together visual artists whose works explore the intersection between art and technology, or who break down the very materials they work with into individual parts.

Exhibiting Artists: Aziz + Cucher, Omar Chacon, Christian Faur, Bradley Hart, Richard Klein, Daniel Rozin, Al Souza, and Devorah Sperber
