After a six-year intermission, And/Or Gallery is thrilled to announce it will reopen in Pasadena, California. The first exhibition in the new space will feature works from the gallery's original and future roster of pioneering artists who work in new media and technology, with pieces by: Cory Arcangel (b. 1978), Kevin Bewersdorf (b. 1981), Petra Cortright (b. 1986), Kathleen Daniel (b. 1945), Dragan Espenshied (b. 1975), Joel Holmberg (b. 1982), Olia Lialina (b. 1971), Guthrie Lonergan (b. 1984), Kristin Lucas (b. 1968), Brenna Murphy (b. 1986), and the website YTMND (b. 2001). The works exhibited span from 2004 to 2015 and offer a quick study of a range of artists' responses to the last decade of technological developments, including the rise of internet culture and the democratization of media creation and sharing. 

Show #26 presents works in an assortment of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, video, .gif, essay, performance, and sound. Some of the pieces on view are: early digital landscapes by Petra Cortright, who has exhibited with The New Museum and LACMA; three music videos by Kathleen Daniel, whose video works were surveyed in a 2016 retrospective at the 9th Berlin Biennale; two works by Guthrie Lonergan and a sound piece by Joel Holmberg, who were both recently included in the Hammer Museum's Made in L.A.biennial; and sculpture by Brenna Murphy, who will premiere a solo show with And/Or later this December, dates to be announced. Also included is work from the Max Goldberg's YTMND web community which produced hundreds of thousands of net artworks in the mid 2000s.
