Art in Focus: What the Heck is Techspressionism? with Colin Goldberg

Date: 05/17/2022

Time: 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm



Colin coined the term Techspressionism in 2011 to describe “an artistic approach in which technology is utilized as a means to express emotional experience.” Since then, it has evolved into an international movement, with periodic online meetups, modeled on the 19th century salon concept, in which artists share their works and personal creative philosophies. Colin will discuss Techspressionism’s genesis, survey its present flowering, and imagine its potential.

Colin Goldberg was born in the Bronx, New York, to parents of Japanese and Jewish ancestry, both Ph.D. chemists. His grandmother Kimiye was an accomplished practitioner and instructor of Japanese Shodo calligraphy. He has been a freelancer in NYC advertising agencies, coding and designing some of the web’s first consumer-facing sites and launching brands such as Snapple, GOLF Magazine, and Popular Science online. He holds a BA in Studio Art from Binghamton University and a MFA in Computer Art from BGSU, and is a recipient of grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts.

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.
