Byron Cohen Gallery offers online animated exhibit

Continuation of current ONLINE EXHIBITION at Byron Cohen Gallery
Barry Anderson : New Work

A selection of Barry's video animations will be on view in a solo exhibition at the Walter Maciel Gallery in Los Angeles July 16-August 19.

New work is being created for the exhibition Between Thee and Me to be held at both the Kansas City Jewish Museum of Contemporary Art and the Greenlease Gallery at Rockhurst University later in the summer.

Two new images will be featured on the MO Bank art billboards in the Kansas City Crossroads district beginning in August.

Where many earlier video artists saw video as an alternative to the relative clarity of film, and often employed it as a means for revealing "real time," or critiquing mass media, Anderson instead embraces the nonlinear structure and high definition of digital filmmaking to encourage aesthetic confusions between art and commerce, document and fiction.
- April Watson : Associate Curator, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

Barry Anderson's investment in new media - not only in its capabilities, but in the vision that it engenders - deepens our own. To witness a survey of Anderson's work is to re-experience our own wondrous apprehension of the changing world around us - changing, that is, according to our new, ever-more-elaborate technologies. Oddly, and thankfully, enough, what Anderson's work does for us is slow down our sense of technological evolution - a sense that has threatened to overwhelm us in its increasing acceleration - by slowing down our experience of technological innovation.
- Peter Frank, Senior Curator, Riverside Art Museum
