PURCHASE, N.Y. -- "Dear Diary: Update All," will be on view at the Neuberger Museum of Art of Purchase College from Jan. 4, 2014 through March 16, 2014.
The exhibition of 20 international artists and 30 artworks explores how artists express their individual and collective identities, and the relationships among memory, document, and fiction. The mixed media exhibition presents work that uses online data, remembrance, handiwork, genetics, gaming, and Google to mark the discord, beauty and banality that occur each day.
According to Jacqueline Shilkoff, the museum's curator of New Media, the exhibit will be “an exciting forum for ideas and interaction.” Adding another dimension to the show, students from Purchase College, SUNY will be on site during museum hours to engage in conversation with visitors about the exhibition as well as help them navigate the show and interact with the artwork. “The artists express an astounding range of poetic philosophical expressions,” Shilkoff said.
Other artists and collaborators in the exhibition include: Kannan Arunasalam, Chloë Bass, Victor Castro, Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen, Chris Collins, Eric Eberhardt, Zach Gage, Mark McKenna, Amanullah Mojadidi, Molleindustria, Óscar Muñoz, Laura Splan, Aalam Wassef, YoHa with Matthew Fuller.
Support for "Dear Diary: Update All" is provided by Marcy Kahn. Additional funding is provided by RBC Wealth Management, the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and the Purchase College Foundation.
