Solo exhibition by Evan Roth
January 23, 2013 – May 10, 2013
University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation
Building 145, College Park, Maryland 20742
I’m really excited to return to my alma mater for this solo exhibition at the University of Maryland’s Kibel Gallery. Photos coming soon.
“Casual Computing is a selection of new and existing works from Evan Roth that highlight his interest in the role of technology in society. With pieces including prints, sculptures, videos and websites, his work is less defined by medium and genre than by its appropriation of popular culture. Whether realized online, in the studio, in the city or at the airport, Roth questions the sacred nature of technology and experiments with showing it creative disrespect. Roth is fascinated with the misuse of seemingly rigid systems, and the effect that philosophies from hacker communities can have when applied outside of computer screens. Casual Computing highlights a changing and empowering approach towards technology as it becomes more commonplace.
Casual Computing will be on display at the University of Maryland’s Kibel Gallery in the School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation from January 23, 2013 – May 10, 2013. This will be Roth’s first time displaying work in UMD’s School of Architecture since he graduated there in 2000. This exhibition, curated by Ronit Eisenbach, is an exciting homecoming for the artist.”
