Artist Talk With OXY Arts — Another Dimension: Reinventing Public Art and Activism with Emergent Technologies


Thursday, September 24, 2020

5:00 PM*


Join us for a discussion with pioneering multimedia artist Nancy Baker Cahill on her use of emergent technologies.

In these unprecedented times of personal isolation, political upheaval, and increasing state surveillance, the creative design of immersive digital experiences in contested spaces has generated innovative forms of resistance to injustice, inequity, and oppression. In this artist talk, pioneering multimedia artist Nancy Baker Cahill will discuss her use of emergent technologies such as augmented and virtual reality to foster new forms of public art and activism. In addition to her own public artworks, she will explore Coordinates, her exhibition series that employs geo-locative technologies to address invisible histories of site including gentrification, ecological disaster, and racial violence, and her unique digital exhibition platform 4th Wall, which currently enables the display of virtual artist-generated phrases over immigrant detention facilities for In Plain Sight.
