Infovis 2008 Art Exhibition

28 October 2008 / exhibition, infovis, site_update, thanks

Documentation of the IEEE Infovis 2008 Art Exhibition, which I co-curated with Fernanda Viégas, is now online here, with some additional photos and panoramas here on Flickr. The exhibition featured the talents of Amy Hoy + Thomas Fuchs, Stefanie Posavec, Peter Crnokrak, W. Bradford Paley, Jonathan Feinberg + Katherine McVety, and Stefanie Gray. It was held from October 19-23 at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Columbus, Ohio.

This was the third annual art exhibition for the Infovis conference, and probably the last one for a while. This is ultimately for the best, as the circumstances for the Art Exhibition at Infovis have never been quite ideal — e.g. a tiny budget; charmless conference-center surroundings; and relatively few artists among the conference’s attendees. The organizers of Infovis have wisely proposed an open-ended new exhibition format for the future, more similar to the “Emerging Technologies” section at Siggraph, which will be much more agnostic about questions of art/design, pure/applied, commercial/research, etcetera.

I’d like to give a heartfelt thanks to the artists for putting in the sweat to prepare their contributions, and to my Student Volunteer assistant, Jihyun Kim, for deftly managing so many additional details of the show.
