lololololololololol: The MFA exhibition of Spencer Brown-Pearn

May 31 - June 14
Venue: CentralTrak
Ticket: Free
Season: 2013-14

Opening Reception: Saturday, May 31, 7 pm

 

CentralTrak kicks off the summer with  “lololololololololol”, an MFA thesis exhibition by Spencer Brown-Pearn. Brown-Pearn seeks to explore an intersection of art and technology, where the expressive ‘hand’ and gesture of painting meet the coded, digital world. Using a multidisciplinary approach, Brown-Pearn uses a combination of traditional media and technology to create paintings, drawings, and interactive sculpture which question the role of the ‘hand’ in an increasingly digital society and explore the implications of this cultural shift.

ABOUT CENTRALTRAK

CentralTrak, The University of Texas at Dallas Artists Residency, established in 2008, is dedicated to the creation, presentation, and advancement of the contemporary arts.  As a live/work space for eight artists, it serves as a community center in the North Texas area for broad intellectual discourse around the arts.  While the residency promotes artistic experimentation through its support of production, the companion gallery encourages critical engagement in a local urban context through exhibitions and related programs. By building on the forward-thinking academic resources of the School of Arts & Humanities at The University of Texas at Dallas, CentralTrak unites artists from an expansive range of creative disciplines to extend and challenge contemporary notions of artistic practice, creative expression, and the role technology plays in these processes.

CentralTrak is supported in part by the generosity of donors and partners from the North Texas area and The University of Texas at Dallas.
