Multiple artists—Infinite Madness
Everything has a touch of digital madness to it these days. With this show curator Barbara Merritt is hoping to hone in on the madness. The sheer vastness of the medium makes for a unique era in the history of art and creativity. It snares the artistic young minds of the early 21st century and peaks the curiosity in the experienced conventional artists that have been producing for decades.
