Electronic arts in Denver, too

Posted By on Fri, Jan 28, 2011 at 8:54 AM

Down here, GOCA 121 is about to investigate the crossover between visual art and noise. (Look for more on its Breaking the Sound Barrier show in next week's paper.)

Up north, the Denver Art Museum will be tackling similarly intangible material. Blink! Light, Sound and the Moving Image is a large-scale exhibit devoted to "electronic and time-based media."

Locals will surely recognize a few of the contributing artists' names, such as William Kentridge, Bill Viola and Lorna Simpson, who all have shown at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. Simpson's video, "Easy to Remember," was a part of Conflict | Resolution and will be in Blink!.

But the list goes on to include electronic art pioneer Nam June Paik, as well as Jenny Holzer, Bruce Nauman and Stacy Steers. James Turrell seems an odd exclusion, but who knows what finagling was done unsuccessfully in an effort to bring one of his works here.

That said, enjoy a preview of this show, which opens March 13 and runs through May 1. Click here for a guide of exhibit events.
