Art + Technology
PUSHING BOUNDARIES IN NEW FIELDS
The Midway is dedicated to the cross-pollination of creative outlets. Pushing the boundaries of new creation through technology is a burgeoning and exciting field. With more and more innovation happening at the intersection of art and technology, The Midway Gallery provides a space for artists to explore this field and an exhibition space to experiment in, such as our immersive projection room where artists have the opportunity to work in surround visuals for all kinds of events. We encourage collaboration across disciplines, pushing boundaries of art and emerging technologies and creating large-scale works to immerse and engage the public.
Whether it’s artist-led renegade parties or high-production festivals, The Midway Gallery creates a stage for artists exhibiting work on the cutting edge of art + technology.
ILLUM / LUMINARY ART + TECHNOLOGY FESTIVAL
Immersive environments star as both local and international artists come together to create unforgettable experiences spanning visual, auditory, and tactile art. Once confined to flat monitors and screens, Luminary (Expanded) reveals art, tech, and music in three moving, living dimensions. Wearable tech couture contracts and morphs based on a viewer’s gaze, an immense gallery becomes a reactive, living organism, percussionists create explosions of color and light, and selfies rain like confetti from the sky.
POP UP ART + TECHNOLOGY EVENTS
Led by artists themselves, these events allow for a casual platform for artists to exhibit works that are still in progress or haven’t been out in the public. These installations can occur on their own in an abandon warehouse or in tandem with a larger music event at The Midway.
