We’re all tired of looking at each other through framed bunches of pixels. The years 2020 and 2021 made digital communication, and the internet, into our most “natural” way to see and hear each other. For Dear www. glór’s curator in residence invited six artists to respond to this reality. All the artwork offers a critical view, challenged by the technology, but at the same time acknowledges the road we’ve all walked and the value that can be found in digital channels.
This project brings together Irish artists based in the West, and Canadian artists based in Treaty 6 Territories – Saskatchewan, to pay tribute to digital art projects from the 20th century. Each Irish-Canadian pair created an artistic response to a historical digital art project, from a 2021 point of view.
glór has joined forces with PAVED Arts in Saskatoon to co-present each digital project. PAVED Arts is a non-profit, community-based organization that exists to advance knowledge and practices in what they call the ‘PAVED Arts’ arts: photography, audio, video, electronic and digital. PAVED Arts helps artists and independent producers to make and exhibit their work.
