Normal Reality presents twelve artists from the U.S., Canada, and Europe, whose embrace of popular digital technologies raises questions about normalcy in the age of accessibility. The artists featured inNormal Reality are guided by the exploratory concerns laid out by early video practitioners, but the environments they navigate are accessed largely through a multilayered and ultra-fragmented media experience of gaming, 24/7 Internet access, social media posting at a stoplight, and GPS. This experience is a given: digital reality is reality, Facebook is our forum, and posting pictures of where we are and what we are eating is increasingly how we define ourselves.

The exhibition is on view at University Galleries of Illinois State University through September 9th. University Galleries is also partnering with ACRE TV to broadcast videos from the artists in groups of three, producing four weekly segments, which will air at 12 pm, 6 pm, and 9 pm daily. 

Week 1: August 5 – 11 / Petra CortrightMariam Graff, and Kathy Rose
Week 2: August 12 – 18 / Andrew RosinskiJaakko Pallasvuo, and Shana Moulton
