Digital with Monument takes its name from the seminal East Village gallery “International with Monument”, founded by three artists in 1984. In the early 80s, International with Monument distinguished itself from the prevailing downtown ethos that was characterized by neo-expressionist bohemianism through its conceptual rigor and critical irony. Inspired by the gallery’s prescient market politics and aesthetics, Digital with Monument looks at ways in which digital thinking manifests and operates in aesthetic practices today, and the range of effects being produced by various digital methods and techniques.
