Still Life, Portrait, Landscape

Can the canon of art history adapt to digitized globalization? What role does an artist have when the relationships between cultural production and consumption are blurred by an electronic network?

Subverting the tropes of Western art history with technology, Indian American artist, Tara Kelton asks those questions with grace and humor. 3D interpretations of Cezanne’s still lives, self portraits commissioned from Amazon workers, and plein-air landscapes drawn blindfolded with VR goggles, all come together to twist Art’s tired clichés with playful irony. Kelton also connects us to her home in Bangalore, the “Silicon Plateau” of India, where tech companies come to mine skilled and unskilled labor. Where do you fit in our global economy?
