Anne Morgan Spalter is a new-media pioneer who initiated and taught the first fine arts new media courses at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and Brown University.

Spalter’s art has explored the concept of the “modern landscape” since first shown publicly at the deCordova Museum in 1992. She draws on her travels and her digital photographic and video database to create still and moving pieces. Works are realized as prints, intimate screen-based works, and large-scale screen and projection works.

Spalter lectures around the globe about her art work at venues including the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and Harvard University. She has been widely discussed in TV interviews and print publications, ranging from the New York Times to USA Today. This past summer she was featured by Dubai as an artist inspired by the region in July 2011 supplements to the International Herald Tribune (worldwide), The Guardian (UK), Le Figaro (France) and Suddeutsche Zeitung (Germany).

With a triple major B.A. from Brown University (Mathematics, Visual Art and Independent Studies) and an M.F.A. in Painting from RISD, Spalter is also the author of the text The Computer in the Visual Arts, used at schools from Harvard University to Pratt Institute. Roger Mandle, current Director of the Qatar Museums Authority and former President of RISD, described this book as “a seductively articulate and illuminating introduction to the rapidly expanding world of the computer and art, design, and animation.” The book has been required, referenced and cited in hundreds of art and design classes and books on digital art, new media and art history.

In 2008, after a decade of contributions to digital and visual computing as Artist-in-Residence at the world-renowned Brown University Computer Graphics Research Group, Spalter left to pursue full-time art creation. While at Brown she worked with or was advised by many computer science and humanities luminaries, including Andy van Dam, a computer graphics pioneer and cofounder of SIGGRAPH, and Alvy Ray Smith, cofounder of Pixar and NYIT. She has been on numerous committees devoted to the digital arts ranging from SIGGRAPH’s Lifetime Achievement Award to the Digital Art Museum’s Advisory Board.

Spalter is represented in New York City by Stephan Stoyanov Gallery, in Paris, France by Catherine Rubin Kermorgant, and in RI by Candita Clayton Studios.
