Pulse and Flow: Art of the Modern Zoetrope
November 12, 2021 @ 8:00 am - January 12, 2022 @ 8:00 pm
The Gallery at Pennsylvania College of Art & Design is proud to present Pulse and Flow: Art of the Modern Zoetrope by Eric Dyer, opening Friday, November 12, and running through January 12, 2022. The opening will be accompanied that same day by a public artist talk at 2 pm.
Dyer, a Baltimore-based artist, “reinvents” and reimagines the zoetrope, a 19th-century optical device. This interactive exhibition features installations by Dyer which are meant to be activated by the viewer. Dyer’s innovative art combines photography, sculpture, and technology that’s both modern and more than a century old to bring sequential static images and objects into motion. His art plays with scale and perspective, and his work has been widely exhibited, from the Smithsonian National Gallery of Art and the screens of Times Square to the London International Film Festival, Ars Electronica, and the Venice and Cairo Biennales. Dyer, who teaches visual arts and animation at University of Maryland Baltimore County, has been a Guggenheim Fellow, Sundance New Frontier Artist, Fulbright Fellow, and Creative Capital Artist. He is represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, New York.
Dyer will present a public Artist Talk Friday, November 12, at 2 pm in the PCA&D Atrium. His Artist Talk also will be held via Zoom for those who are remote. To watch via Zoom, visit bit.ly/PCADDyer.
