INTERNATIONAL // VISUAL ARTS Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) in association with Melbourne Festival presents TECHNOLOGISM Curator CHARLOTTE DAY Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) concludes its three–part series on watershed moments in art history with Technologism, a major group exhibition on the cultural, social and political impact of technological advancements in the modern era. Featuring artworks that engage both physically and conceptually with electronic systems— television, computers, the internet, smartphones—Technologism focuses on the ways artists critique and disrupt official uses of the media, or construct their own machines and data systems. Bringing together historical and contemporary artworks from Australian and international practitioners, including several new commissions, Technologism delves into the profound impact technology has made on art.
