CURRENT SCREENSAVER
ScreenSaverGallery presents: The Limits of ScreenSavers_A SCRAVER AS A UNIQUE AND SHOCKING ART FORM


It has been eight years since the ScreenSaverGallery started exploring the waters of the computer screensaver as an artistic medium. The research not only happens during exhibitions in the gallery itself, but it has also taken on a more academic dimension.

The culmination of this research is the publication The Art of Screensaver (published by BUT & PAF), an exhibition Screensaver as a Unique and Shocking Artform curated for the Gallery XY in Olomouc, Czech Republic (Dec 13 2021 – Jan 31 2022), and two extensive ScreenSaverGallery exhibitions we have prepared for the year 2021: The First and Only Retrospective of Artistic Computer Screensavers (April–December 2021) and The Limits of ScreenSavers_A SCRAVER AS A UNIQUE AND SHOCKING ART FORM starting just now.[1]

 

The exhibition is an archival one and traces back the screensavers presented at 2000 exhibition Refresh: The Art of the Screen Saver, possibly (one of) the first exhibitions of artistic screen savers in an art institution, which was held between November 4 and 26, 2000 at Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University, Stanford, California (as well as on-line at ArtMuseum.net).
