How can Seattle artists appeal to the affluent newcomers in the tech sector? This is a question I see a lot of artists and gallerists posing lately, and it seems to be an anxiety underlying Tech Support, a group exhibition curated by Colleen RJC Bratton aimed at bridging the gap between Seattle's art and tech scenes. Formatted like a quasi-store that sells tech-based art objects, Tech Support features an outstanding roster of artists including Dakota Gearhart, Jason Hirata, Sol Hashimi, Francisco Guerrero, and Ellen Jing Xu. A community discussion facilitated by Bratton and Minh Nguyen on December 9 will explore how art and tech communities can better support each other.
"Please join us for Tech Support's opening reception December 7th from 6-8pm. An accompanying public brainstorming session on how the art and tech communities can better support one another will be held at SOIL on December 9th, 2017 from 12-2pm. Facilitated by Minh Nguyen and Colleen RJC Bratton, the event will also be live broadcasted and recorded via SOIL's Instagram account."
