ICONICITY brings together contemporary artworks that examine the concept, construction, and mythology of the icon. The artists in the exhibition explore ideas ranging from the connection between Medieval devotional iconography and emojis to the religious fervor of technology. Guest curated by Munich-based artist and curator Gretta Louw, the exhibition includes video, software and net art, textile art, and digital prints by nine international artists and artist groups.
Artists include: American Artist, Carla Gannis, Jan Robert Leegte, Gretta Louw, Keiichi Matsuda, Owen Mundy, Tabita Rezaire, Alicia Ross, and the Warnayaka Art Centre.
ICONICITY is supported in part by funds from the City of Munich and a grant from the Malka Fund. The exhibition and the 2018-2019 Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery schedule is made possible by a generous grant from the Paul W. Zuccaire Foundation. Additional funding is provided by the County of Suffolk and the Friends of Staller Center.
