The exhibition Instagram and the Artist’s Studio explores the varying uses of Instagram as evinced by ten different artists and artist collectives. Their identities as local, regional, national, or international artists becomes almost irrelevant as the collapsing of geographic barriers is one of the most profound outcomes of Instagram’s global proliferation.
What constitutes the physical presence of the artists’ Instagram accounts will vary in the MCAD Concourse Gallery space. For some there will be an indexical reference to what is seen virtually, while for others there will be an enlarged visual presence that changes the relationship of the viewing body to that of the images. All of the installations will challenge traditional modes of understanding the “presence” of an artwork.
