Overview of Exhibition
Intellectual Property Donor is the first major U.S. one-person presentation of the artist’s pioneering, multi-faceted and interactive installations, custom software, prints, sculptures and websites. Roth, a self-professed “hacktivist” artist, is interested in uses of technology in popular culture and the urban environment. He playfully transforms existing information systems into public, often political, statements. Blurring the line between artist and hacker, the exhibition challenges gallery visitors to consider how everyday life intersects with virtual reality and how viral media can become high art. Organized by Zilkha Gallery, Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut.
