Moholy-Nagy, Media and the Arts l Craig Street Cats’ Spay-Ghetti Dinner l Doug Edmond & Sweet Alibi l Kraken and Spirits and Beads - Mardi Gras

March 7, 7:00 pm
Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art, Unit 1 - 460 Portage Avenue

Plug In ICA is pleased to present the opening reception of 
Sensing the Future: Moholy-Nagy, Media and the Arts. 
The reception is free, and all are welcome. 
The exhibition is organized around some of Moholy-Nagy’s key themes: sensory training, technology/modernity, production/reproduction, immersion/participation, art as information/information as art, and transparency/reflection/motion.

Sensing the Future considers the impact of technology today by exploring how it was addressed in the practice of the Hungarian polymath artist László Moholy-Nagy (1895 – 1946), a key figure in the history of Modernism. Moholy-Nagy is known for his work in traditional media such as painting and sculpture, but also in photography and film, as well as in stage and exhibition design, typography, and advertising. 

This short film, made by László Moholy-Nagy in 1930, is based on the shadow patterns created by his Light-Space Modulator. 

Curated by Oliver Botar, Sensing the Future combines historical artworks with works by contemporary artists from Canada, Europe and the United States. 

The artists included: Eduardo Aquino (Winnipeg); the team of Nike Arnold, Andreas Haus, Aline Helmcke, Frédéric Krauke and Walter Lenertz (Berlin); Naomi Claire (Baltimore); Lancelot Coar (Winnipeg); Olafur Eliasson (Berlin); Oskar Fischinger; Ken Gregory (Winnipeg); Patrick Harrop (Winnipeg); the team of Gottfried Jäger and Karl Martin Holzhäuser (Bielefeld); Eduardo Kac (Chicago); György Kepes; the team of Jörg U. Lensing, Gudula Schröder, Jürgen Steger, Thomas Neuhaus, Malou Airaudo and Sascha Hardt (Düsseldorf); Erika Lincoln (Winnipeg); Norman McLaren; the team of Guy Maddin, Evan Johnson, Galen Johnson, Bob Kotyk and Ryan Simmons (Winnipeg); Bernie Miller (Winnipeg); Lucia Moholy; Francisco Javier Navarro de Zuvillaga (Madrid); Freya Olafson (Winnipeg); István Sebök; and Peter Yeadon (New York).
