“Sanity Disobedience for a New Frontier,” an exhibition that addresses the concept of technological assimilation in the digital age and its relationship to counter-cultural, anti-conformity assumptions. The show alludes to the irrational becoming rational, a paradox reflected in many characteristics of the digital age. In a sense, according to exhibition curator Rod Malin, the show explores the attitudinal space between two media pieces, Bas Jan Ader’s short conceptual film piece of 1970 “I’m Too Sad to Tell You,” in which the artist cries in front of a camera after a brief title, and Chris Crocker’s more recent YouTube phenomenon “Leave Britney Alone.” Although neither of these works appears in the show, they act as psychological signposts or brackets for the art on view.

Artists include: Allen Cordell • Tom Moody • Jamie O’Shea • Sophia Peer • Tristan Perich • Meridith Pingree • David Prince • Janos Stone
