Description

In his artistic practice, Shimon uses both traditional and experimental media, including immersive multiple-channel video and other digital tools. He will respond to the exhibition in light of technology’s expressive potential for re-imagining relationships between space, time, place, memory and identity.

Shimon Attie is an internationally renowned visual artist whose work spans photography, video, site-specific installation, public projects, and new media. A recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation’s Lee Krasner Award, he was awarded The Rome Prize in 2001, a Visual Artist Fellowship from Harvard University’s Radcliffe Institute for Advance Study in 2007, and a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2008. He became the inaugural Bergman Visiting Professor at Stony Brook in the fall of 2020.

This Art in Focus Tech Tuesday lecture is co-sponsored by Stony Brook Southampton Library, the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, and the Southampton Arts Center, in conjunction with the exhibition Techspressionism: Digital & Beyond at the Southampton Arts Center. The talks are free, but registration is required. Made possible by support from the John H. Marburger III Fund of Stony Brook University.
