ART on THE MART Fall Program Premiere – Fifth Anniversary Celebration
Join us on the Riverwalk on Thursday, Sept. 14 to celebrate the launch of ART on THE MART’s Fall Program. ART on THE MART celebrates its fifth anniversary this fall with a live DJ set starting at 7 p.m. followed by projections by two veterans in the field of digital and video art. The 2023 fall programming will feature a new commission by the acclaimed Dr. Yiyun Kang, esteemed in the field of projection mapping and immersive art, and the return of the popular projection by the renowned Charles Atlas. Responding to humanity’s environmental crisis and the unfathomable power and intelligence of AI technologies, Dr. Kang’s site-specific commission Only in the Dark will unfold over three immersive scenes that mix digital animations with AI-generated imageries to explore how we can think collectively about a more inclusive future. ART on THE MART’s fall 2023 season will also revisit Charles Atlas’s celebrated projection, The Geometry of Thought, which first debuted in fall 2019. The site-specific work features a characteristic combination of abstract shapes and numerals unfolding over eight chapters. Dr. Kang and Atlas’s projections will be on view nightly at 7:30pm CT from September 14 to November 15, 2023.
