Drawing in the Computer Age

Rachel Federman

During the 1960s, a number of artists became keenly interested in the nascent field of computing. Mainframe computers on college campuses and collaboration with industry provided unprecedented access to this new technology. Rachel Federman, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Drawings and curator of the exhibition By Any Means: Contemporary Drawings from the Morgan, will investigate the intersection of drawing and computer technology and its impact on contemporary art.

The exhibition By Any Means: Contemporary Drawings from the Morgan will be open for program attendees.

Tuesday, March 5, 12 PM
