Pink Hobo Gallery Opens the Data Art Show this Wednesday!

From Secrets of the City:

This Wednesday the new Pink Hobo Gallery in Northeast Minneapolis opens an innovative exhibit featuring three well-respected digital artists: Jer Thorp, James Paterson, and Mario Klingemann. With roots in everything from genetics to interactive design, this trio of rogue creatives are part of a booming new movement that reaches beyond traditional mediums and melds technology and art. Graphic design and digital art has slowly crept into the contemporary art world and established itself as a force to be reckoned with over the last decade, with a considerable jump in mainstream popularity within the past few years. These veteran computational artists use tools such as animation, interactive design and algorithms to create large-scale representations that are both thought provoking and visually intense.

All three artists will be in attendance at the opening reception this Wednesday, June 10th from 7 p.m. to Midnight. Show runs through July 20th. Pink Hobo Gallery, 507 E. Hennepin Avenue, Northeast Minneapolis.
