DESCRIPTION

Screens, whether in hands, vehicles, or rooms, have become a nearly ubiquitous interface. In Screen Play, the Dorsky Museum's annual exhibition of Hudson Valley Artists, fifteen artists respond to or use screens as a material, process, or metaphor. Screens as varied as textiles, painted canvases, projected images, and digital monitors serve as poetic and practical means to translate pictures from one realm to another. The screen "assembles experience, processes it, and disseminates it," design philosopher Villem Flusser wrote. Collapsing the differences of hard and soft and digital and analog, the screen becomes a unifying surface upon which we project and receive memories and desires.
