Please join us for an evening of drinks, conversation, and collaboration. Together with interactive artist Marpi, The Midway Gallery started a series that we call our Binary Salons. Our Binary Salons are a place where artists who are working at the intersection of art + technology can come together to share ideas and practices. These Salons are for artists and by artists.
On January 22 @ 6pm we will feature a new set of artists who use technologies to engage audiences in unique and thoughtful ways, taking participation and immersion to new levels. Presentations by mixed-reality artist, Nick Shelton, and installation artist, Will Clark, will discuss how the union of art and tech promotes collaboration, public engagement, and education.
