Pixelated: Sum of its Pieces brings together emerging and mid-career artists whose work explores different means of perception.

For better or worse, our lives are increasingly played out on a screen. From checking directions to playing a game on the latest best selling app, digital technologies are a part of our everyday lives. This exhibition brings together visual artists whose works explore the intersection between art and technology. Just as individual “pixels” are pieced together to create a larger image or message, these artists break down the very materials they work with into individual parts.

Visitors are encouraged to look carefully: what you see from far away may strongly differ from what you view up-close. Each artwork is intended to be examined from different distances and viewpoints.

Created by CMA Teaching Artists in conjunction with arts education professionals, CMA curriculum guides draw connections between interdisciplinary themes in contemporary art exhibits and classroom learning by using contextual information and reflective practices. View and Download

This exhibition is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
