New York Electronic Art Festival aims to provide a discursive public context for the appreciation of cutting-edge electronic artwork, a showcase of exciting interdisciplinary work and technological virtuosity. Attendees get an overview of how technology is being used in various artistic disciplines, and will have the opportunity to take part in a discussion about how these technologies will continue to shape contemporary art practice.
Technology can play a role that is both daunting and exhilarating, and art is the most vital tool we have for realizing the potential of our technologies. Harvestworks has organized 2015 New York Electronic Art Festival around the theme of Plausible Worlds, a challenge to artists to define his/her/their relationship to art and technology and, through this, explore the limits of human agency and imagination.
The Workshops, Panel and Project Demos at three different venues across the city invite stimulating discussion with and audience participation in projects by pioneering artists.
Four Taiwanese artists: Chi-Wei Lin, Dawang Yingfan Huang, Yousheng Zhang and Ruey-Shiann Shyu are invited to participate in this year’s NYEAF. They will be giving concerts, installing pieces and holding workshops and demos, curated by Xiaoying Juliette Yuan, through a grant from Ministry of Cultural, Taiwan (R.O.C.) and Taipei Cultural Center of TECO in New York.
