Pace Digital Gallery is pleased to present new media work from:
Synthesis and Distribution: Experiments in Collaboration
Will Pappenheimer, Pace University
Ron Janowich, University of Florida
Merijn van der Heijden, Ohio State University
Notions of synthesis and distribution in collaboration represent a coming together of separate identities into a new and highly invigorating investigation.
As a pre-requisite, participants must question or set aside familiar rules and tools to open up a particular problem in art and visual language from different perspectives. The process is likely to encompass dialogue, brainstorming, overlay, distribution, hybridization, and new forms of cooperative invention. This way of working is not necessarily shaped by personal language or personal concerns. It can be understood as a third language. It is a way of working that is based on mutual respect and risk-taking that allows a team or group to venture into new and unknown directions.“Synthesis and Distribution: Experiments in Collaboration” is an ongoing and changing series of exhibitions featuring the unexpected results of artistic and interdisciplinary collaboration.
The artists, writers and thinkers were invited based on their willingness to explore and transform each other’s work. They may have already established an existing collaborative body of work or they may be encouraged to uncover this latent interest within the purview of this exhibition. Above all, this enterprise is motivated by the involvement and commitment of the curators to support and exhibit the unique potential of the collaborative process.Artists from over five countries will exhibit work in photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, new media, video, digital printing, and musical performance. Interdisciplinary collaborations will include visual arts, musical performance, criticism, writing, architecture and the social sciences. They will be exhibited simultaneously in all three of Pace University’s Fine Arts Galleries.

CineGrid members, Waag Society, SURFnet, SARA and the Universiteit van Amsterdam, will be the first Dutch participants in an international network to develop the cinema of the future.
CineGrid projects connect the newest generation of digital cameras and projectors to supercomputers over fiber-optic networks to make 4K cinema possible.
At the moment, there are only three places in the world where you can experience 4K cinema: two in America and one in Japan. Thanks to the Dutch initiative, by 2008 Amsterdam will become the first European CineGrid node in Europe.

The Pleasure of Obvious Problems is the first survey exhibition of the work of Californian artist Meg Cranston.
The exhibition title reflects Cranston’s theory about art. “Art makes abstract concepts tangible. It makes problems, love or death or power or whatever it is, it makes those issues visible. The best art makes complex ideas obvious. That’s the pleasure of art”.
The exhibition includes a selection of Cranston’s work in sculpture, performance and mixed media installation, spanning her twenty-year career (1987- 2007). It also includes new works created especially for the exhibition. - Exhibition organized and toured by Artspace.
