What happens to the concept of “Salon” — a physical, usually by invitation gathering where like-minded people explore arts topics of interest — when the discussion takes place via cyberspace?
According to Carla Knopp, guest curator of Asynchronous Salon, a new exhibition at Herron School of Art and Design, there’s a sort of multiplier effect.
Although she had not met them all in person, Knopp, who graduated from Herron with a bachelor’s degree in painting in 1984, invited Mary Addison Hackett, Steven LaRose, and Nomi Lubin to join her for a show in Herron’s Marsh Gallery as a result of being “art blog buddies.”
Herron’s Gallery Director Paula Katz thinks the show is important because “its premise—using technology to create communities about artwork—is relevant to the new working methods of today’s artists.” For more info, visit www.herron.iupui.edu.
