Remote Possibilities: Digital Landscapes from the Thoma Foundation Collection
October 9, 2021–February 27, 2022
Harwood Museum of Art, Taos
Remote Possibilities: Digital Landscapes from the Thoma Foundation Collection brings together six of the world’s foremost contemporary artists to engage the tradition of landscape art through digital media.
John Gerrard, Kent Monkman, Bruce Nauman, Jennifer Steinkamp, Leo Villareal, and Marina Zurkow use digital technologies in the artistic pursuit of veritable representation, the digital sublime, humanity’s need to control the wild, and meaning-making in our natural world. The result is an exploration that is both ethical and sensory, pleasurable and devious.
All works in this exhibition are lent from the collection of the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Foundation, a grant-making and art collecting organization based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, that supports pivotal initiatives in the areas in which it collects: art of the Spanish Americas, digital and media art, Japanese bamboo, and post-war painting and sculpture. The digital and media art collection comprises more than 300 pieces from the 1960s through 2021, representing the depth and diversity of the field including historic computer drawings, video sculptures, software art, internet art, interactive art, and electronic light sculptures.
