Founded as a not-for-profit organization by artists in 1977, Harvestworks’ mission is to support the creation and presentation of art works achieved through the use of new and evolving technologies. We create an environment where artists can make work inspired and achieved by electronic media; provide a public context for the appreciation of new art; and bring together innovative practitioners from all branches of the arts collaborating in the use of electronic media. We assist with commissions and residencies, production services, education and information programs, and the presentation and distribution of their work.
The Art and Technology Program on Governors Island is centered on art works created at the intersection of art and technology. It includes artists open studios, exhibitions of digital media art, public workshops and performances in our educational research facility in Nolan Park. Our goal is to provide exhibition opportunities to electronic media artists and also to educate the public about how artists use new and emerging technology for artistic expression.
This year’s program, The Workings of Media [Art and Artists], is a series of presentations, workshops, open studios and exhibitions to understand social and cultural changes reflected through the lens of art and artists. Curator and director Carol Parkinson has selected these artists because of their use of the new media technology including sound, smell and augmented realities. The Art and Technology program is a component of our Creative Residency and Sponsored Projects programs and seeks to create a responsive public context for the appreciation of new work and to advance the art’s community and the the public’s appreciation of the use of technology in art.
