In light of the request from the San Francisco Department of Public Health to suspend all non-essential large gatherings due to the COVID-19 virus, we have made the difficult decision to cancel CIIS Public Programs events scheduled for the month of March.

As a result, Art in the Digital on March 18 is cancelled at this time.

If you have tickets for this event, you should have received an email notifying you of the cancellation and your ticket fees should have been refunded in full. If you did not receive any information from us, please email publicprograms@ciis.edu so that we can ensure your refund was processed.

CIIS is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation daily. At this time, only Public Programs events in March are being canceled. For updates about future events and other activities at CIIS, click here

Art helps us explore, relate to one another, and make sense of our world. While traditional art forms remain relevant in our modern world, the central importance of technology in our lives continues to increase and evolve­, so it is no surprise that artists increasingly make use of digital and interactive technologies as a means for making meaning.

The use of virtual reality, artificial intelligence, the internet, social media, and other technologies is challenging and expanding traditional concepts of art making and viewing. Digital technologies also provide platforms for confronting issues we all face in the information age.

Join digital artist Rhonda Holberton and curator Ceci Moss for an exciting conversation exploring the intersection of art and technology and the future of art in the digital age. Rhonda and Ceci examine how advances in technology influence and inspire all aspects of creating, presenting, and viewing art. Drawing on their collective knowledge of new multimedia art practices, their discussion explores art in digital spaces, internet art practices, and interactive digital installations.

Learn how art and technology work together to provide new pathways for understanding our world and ourselves.
