Surface is a group exhibition opening in Mana BSMT’s new 3,000 square foot gallery. It will feature work by five Mana BSMT Residents who work primarily as GIF artists: Matthias Brown (Traceloops), Sam Cannon, Julian Glander, Thoka Maer, and Hayden Zezula (Zolloc). Until now, their artwork has been created for and seen on screens, and shared across social platforms. This exhibition is their first exploration into creating work that can only be experienced in a physical space: sculpture, installation, performance, and gaming. By eliminating screens and creating site-specific experiences, this exhibition will illustrate a collective surfacing from the digital to the physical realm.
Sam Cannon featured as one of seven photographers at work on Election Day 2016, capturing images from different vantage points across America as the election took a course few expected.
