At the intersection of art and technology, the leading figure is Mark Tribe. An early adopter of new media, in 1996 Tribe started Rhizome.org as an online resource for anyone with similiar curiousity about how emerging technology affects culture. In his artistic practice, he's interested in using art and media to ignite conversations and change, often political. The upcoming exhibition at Zhulong Gallery, Mark Tribe: New Landscapes, will display a series of work interested in the environment and the changing human experience with nature. Large in scale, these pieces seek to explore the recreation of “untouched” landscapes in video games or virtual realities. His pieces will push the virtual back into the physical world through aerial photography in conversation with great masters of painting. There will be an artist talk at 5 p.m. Saturday, followed by an opening reception from 6-9 p.m. Admission is free. The show will remain on display through April 18 at Zhulong Gallery (1302 Dragon St.) More at zhulonggallery.com.
Sat., March 14, 5 p.m.; Tuesdays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: March 14. Continues through April 18, 2015
