The Montclair Art Museum is pleased to present New Media: New Forms, a group exhibition of new media art by New Jersey-based artists and this year’s New Jersey Fine Arts Annual Exhibition. As the world becomes increasingly digitized, many contemporary artists are incorporating new technologies into their work. The thirteen artists selected for this juried exhibition produce work that actively and innovatively engages with digital media, in terms of process, form, or content. The featured artists work in video, sound, installation, photography, sculpture, drawing, and performance.
The New Jersey Arts Annual is a unique series of Fine Arts and Crafts exhibitions highlighting the works of visual artists and craftspeople in the state. The Arts Annual series is co-sponsored by the New Jersey Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment of the Arts; the Montclair Art Museum; the Morris Museum; the Newark Museum; the Noyes Museum of Art and the New Jersey State Museum. The exhibition was open to artists currently living or working in New Jersey and who engage with digital media in their work, and was juried by Curator of Contemporary Art of the Montclair Art Museum, Alexandra Schwartz and Kelly Baum, Haskell Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Princeton University Art Museum.
