Back to All Events


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 Tuesday, May 28 @ 6pm we will feature a new set of artists who use technologies to engage audiences in unique and thoughtful ways. Binary Salon 10 includes presentations by collaborators, Dylan Chapple and Ryan Huber, whose work sub_Tidal is centered around environmental health. Shane Lannister will round out the evening with a discussion of his audio-visual projects.


Past Salons have featured artists: Inigo Quilez (IQ), Can Buyukberber, Chelley Sherman, Eccoscreen, Osman Koc, Jeffrey Yip, Swan, Cere Davis, Lauren Bedal & Travis Bennett, Donald Hanson, Xiaohan Zhang, Dylan Urquidi, Camila Magrane, Zoey Vero, Nick Shelton, Will Clark, Anastasia Victor, and Tyler Freeman.
