Floating Point:Work by 49 Columbia MFAs
Columbia University and Judith Charles Gallery are pleased to debut Floating Point, an exhibition of 49 of New York's most promising young artists from the Columbia MFA program. The show includes work in all mediums--from browser bending video work to terrifying sculptural visions of the future to lush abstract painting.
Because the unifying thread of this exhibition is the shared space these artists make their work, the show's title pays homage to that building. Floating Point, a computational term that refers to a formula or code that approximates a real number, was first used in what is now the Columbia studios in Watson Hall. (Between 1948-1954 they housed the IBM 610, first personal computer and between 1955-1968 NORC the first supercomputer. Both used the formula.)
