Drawing in the Computer Age

Wednesday, June 10, 2020, 3 PM

Tickets: Free; limited availability, advance registration is required.

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, Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Drawings and curator of the 2019 exhibition By Any Means: Contemporary Drawings from the Morgan, will investigate the intersection of drawing and computer technology and its impact on contemporary art.

Please note that the program will take place online. After registering, participants will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to participate using Zoom. We ask that you download the app in advance for the best user experience.
