This event has ended.

Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents From Digital and Back, an exhibition showcasing the work of eight recent Pratt Digital Arts alumni. Each piece of work in this exhibition carries a distinct time stamp of today and includes interactive installations and objects, digital images, video, animation, and digital mixed media. There is no language or aesthetic overlap. From emotionally charged machinima video, manipulated photographs of a near future, finding the soul in obsolete hardware, fantastical wearable devices, to handwritten poems, drawings, and a video chain of single moments, to visualizing emotions of finding one’s home and place in the world, the message always shapes the medium.

This exhibition represents a small selection of the many Pratt Digital Arts alumni who are featured in important publications, exhibiting in galleries and new media institutions, and working in major creative industries. Graduates emerge as critically informed and skilled creators actively shaping our digital future. Alumni continue to build on their education to respond to a diverse and networked culture, and to produce experiences that provide audiences agency to explore critical issues.

From Digital and Back is curated by Magdalena Sawon, a contemporary art gallerist and art world figure who founded and owns New York’s Postmasters Gallery. The featured artists include: Jacky Connolly, Takehito Etani, Bryce Grates, Qin Han, Cesar Kuriyama, Dakota Pailes-Friedman, Taezoo Park, and Nick Pedersen.
