Artist Talk: A Subjective Response to Emerging Technologies: a Conversation with Siebren Versteeg
New York-based digital artist Siebren Versteeg will discuss his work in relation to new technologies and contemporary art. From the origins of the web, to Web 2.0, to NFTs and blockchain, Versteeg's practice continues to respond and meddle with the burgeoning media forms that reshape our connections to art, value, and truth. He will address this work as it relates to ongoing interests in algorithmic computation, painterly abstraction, and doom scrolling.
Versteeg was born in 1971 in New Haven, CT. He received his MFA from The University of Illinois at Chicago. He has exhibited nationally and internationally. Recent exhibitions include Bitforms, New York, NY; Minnesota Street Projects, San Francisco, CA; Art Vault, Santa Fe, NM; Sharjah Art Foundation, Dubai, United Arab Emirates; and Andrew Racfacz, Chicago, IL. His work is included in several collections such as the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Marguilies Collection at the WAREhOUSE, Miami; Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC.; Yale Art Gallery, New Haven, CT; and the Guggenheim, New York, NY.
