|CADRE 20th Anniversary Exhibition at ISEA|
by Sheila Malone
CADRE's 20 years of positioning within new media arts culture and 20 years of research in computers in art brings together for the first time in one space: Twenty-one artists who have come out of the CADRE Laboratory for New Media; some established, seasoned, some recent graduates.
The show, titled, ex_XX:: post position reveals the tracking and critiquing of contemporary culture and mass media. The satiric, the serious, and the inquisitive nature of CADRE graduates sets the stage for such innovative and controversial works which address ideas of systems of data, data mining, terrorism in America, culture wars, theory as art, data base immersion and internet play. Ex_XX:: post position responds to an ever increasing mapped world that is described through each artist's unique approach to position.
