That's not it Opening Reception

  • 888 Newark Avenue Jersey City, NJ, 07306 United States (map)

Join us to celebrate the opening night of That’s not it, a group exhibition curated by Mana BSMT artist-in-residence Alex Czetwertynski. The title plays with our need to categorize art practices, but insists on the “tip of the tongue” moment we all feel when confronted with the endless range of the so-called “Post-New Media Art”. Spread across the entire Basement level of Mana Contemporary, the show uses Mana’s versatile studio environment as exhibition space, combining works that range from interactive sound work to machine vision and moving light sculptures. Featuring guest artists as well as BSMT artists-in-residence, and framed in the context of the Mana BSMT’s New Media Program, That's not it wraps digital practices in a loose net, but stutters when asked: “what is it”?
