An opening reception is 6-9 p.m., Thursday, July 31. The exhibit will be part of First Friday, Southtown's monthly gallery open house, on Friday, Aug. 1.
In "Media Lab," the six artists investigate the role of communication and the bombardment of information we receive with frequent sensory input from YouTube, reality television, social computing, Google and cell phones. According to Gary Wise, exhibit curator and M.F.A. student, the artists examine, contort and refocus these nascent aspects of our society through the use of video, audio and computer-based artwork.
