What are Artist's Picks?

In conjunction with their exhibitions, each New Media Artspace resident artist assembles a collection of reference materials to help visitors and students understand their work and artistic process. These Artist’s Picks can be anything that inspires or contextualizes the exhibition. They include essays, films, books, interviews, TV shows and more. Ranging from theory to popular culture, Artist’s Picks offer another layer of meaning to New Media Artspace exhibitions. They are archived online as a teaching resource and for anyone interested in researching the artist or exhibition themes.

Public Hours

The gallery is open to the public by appointment during regular library hours. Please contact to arrange a visit.
