“Through the ages, artists, writers, and filmmakers have always been inspired by space. Artists’ visionary depictions of space as an environment for people have influenced the scientific and engineering feats we know so well today. How will artists continue to inspire the future of space exploration? What are the opportunities and challenges in the creation of art for space, and art depicting space a...
Between 1973 and 2013 London worked at this esteemed New York fine art institution, helping MoMA establish itself as a preeminent position in the field of video art. Her new book, Video/Art: The First Fifty Years, describes the development of this new medium, its key practitioners, and London’s role in documenting and developing the form. In this interview, she runs us through her early studio visits, the schisms that arose in the scene, and how, nearly half a century on from her entry into the art world, she’s working hard to understand what’s coming next.
Hyphen Hub member of the artist community Krzysztof Wodiczko currently having two major exhibitions in New York. Monument, at Madison Square Park and A House Divided at Galerie Lelong which is a new projection-installation work exploring contemporary political polarization in the United States and reflective of the world at large. This exhibition follows the opening of the artist’s most recent site-specific projection, Monument, commissioned by Madison Square Park Conservancy and on view January 16 through May 10, 2020.
Wodiczko’s lifelong investigation of speech in public spaces aims to give voice to the marginalized and thereby generate an impetus for systematic change. Wodiczko’s practice, which he terms “Interrogative Design,” combines art and technology with contemporary issues of urban,...
This exhibition explores the connection between art, science, and educational processes to visually translate our simple understanding of complex phenomenon in the universe through sound, video, and sculptural installations. Comprised of "translation machines", he interprets vast concepts like dark matter and black holes into intelligible art on a micro scale.
The artist will be in conversation with Asher Remy-Toledo, founder and director of Hyphen Hub and Barbara London, curator, writer and professor who founded the video exhibition and collection programs at the MOMA, where she worked between 1973 and 2013. Currently she is organizing the exhibition “Seeing Sound” which Independent Curators International (ICI) will begin touring this year and where Juan Cortés is included. Her book Video/Art: The...
ABOUT SUB: This project is an immersive environment envisioned by Austrian-born, New York-based, Kurt Hentschläger. In its premier at Mana Contemporary, SUB uses dramatic perceptual shifts to invoke direct audience engagement.
The installation’s gestalt approach gives an elevated sense of drama, bringing visitors into its expansive void. SUB’s complete dark environment is punctuated by bursts of animated light, which leave ghostly retinal impressions that linger as the light fades. Sound provides both an accompaniment to these moments of light, and a constant backdrop to the setting.
SUB has no beginning or end. Visitors may enter at any time and stay as long as they desire. The visual and sonic impressions vary substantially, creating a unique experience for each particip...

Robot Shimon can now add film composer to his list of accomplishments.
The marimba-playing robot’s talents are well-known. So much so, that a few years ago he was invited to compose for a film. He completed the work in the spring of 2018.
But despite all his talents, Shimon can’t work alone. Richard Savery was tapped to join him. Savery is a Ph.D. student at the Center for Music Technology in the College of Design at Georgia Tech.
He wrote the algorithms to give Shimon the knowledge to compose and produce the score for Space Between Fragility Curves. The film is part of a large-scale installation comprised of projected video images on two lar...
RE-ANIMATED at the 2019 Venice Biennale. As part of the Future Generation Art Prize exhibition, my work will be exhibited at the Palazzo Ca’ Tron, a Venetian Renaissance palace.
RE-ANIMATED is a virtual reality and video installation that brings back to life the extinct Kauai’O’o song bird from the island of Kauai in Hawaii. The new installation will merge a digital replica of Kauai with the architecture of the exhibition space, uniting the worlds of RE-ANIMATED and the Palazzo Ca'Tron.
Entering a new landscape framed by two monolithic video screens and mulch-covered floors, viewers will immerse themselves in RE-ANIMATED's environment composed of 3D scanned flora and fauna, lichen, rocks and feathe...
The exhibition Quantum gives us the keys to understanding the principles of Quantum physics, and it does so through the joint creative work of scientists and artists. The project invites the public to browse freely, to awaken their curiosity, and to critically evaluate the new paradigms of modern science.
Quantum physics describes the fundamental laws of the world that remain hidden from the senses. It is the human theory that most accurately describes nature today. In many respects, it is a surprising theory, subject to criticism and of great philosophical scope.
First, ten artistic projects show how the impact of quantum physics goes beyond the realm of science. Then, nine windows introduce laboratory research work and present visitors with the intellectual achievement represented by the theori...
