Suspended Animation exhibition at the Hirschhorn Museum, Washington D.C
Artists: Ed Atkins, Antoine Catala, Ian Cheng, Josh Kline, Helen Marten, Agnieszka Polska
This week I finally was able to see Suspended Animation at the Hirschhorn Museum which closes on March 12, 2017. Gianni Jetzer, the exhibition’s curator and the Hirshhorn’s curator-at-large presents 6 digital artists engaged with issues of the self and virtual reality. Jetzer said, "the point of the animated image is not simply to mirror reality as faithfully as possible. The animated image has evolved into another kind of reality, to be entered into imaginatively at will. It now competes with reality on equal footing.”
