Art House is pleased to present TRANSFER Download, a survey of new digital art by
an international roster of contemporary artists, selected by New York-based curator Kelani Nichole in
collaboration with the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation. The exhibition is showcased in an
interactive display chamber called a hyperspace, an immersive projection area controlled by visitors
who can select from a menu of artworks to view. TRANSFER Download brings together the latest
generation of artists who engage with powerful technologies of 3D animation software, gaming engines,
and algorithmic simulation. The exhibition opens in concert with the Currents New Media Festival (June
8-24), during which Art House is a participating venue.

Artists in the exhibition include AES+F (Moscow); LaTurbo Avedon (The Internet); Claudia Hart (New
York/Chicago); Rollin Leonard (Los Angeles); Sabrina Ratte (Montreal); and Theo Triantafyllidis (Los
Angeles); Rick Silva and Nicolas Sasson (Pacific Northwest); Carla Gannis (New York); Daniel Temkin
(New York); Alex McLeod (Toronto); and Harvey Moon (San Francisco).

TRANSFER Download is shown within the Thoma Foundation’s digital art collection at Art House,
Santa Fe. Spanning the global history of computer art of the past fifty years, the Foundation’s collection
includes some of the first algorithmic plotter drawings on paper, software-driven, generative, and
custom-coded artworks, interactive works based on real-time gaming platforms, internet-based or
networked art, and works that utilize LED and LCD displays. The Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art
Foundation recognizes the cultural and intellectual value of artworks that make use of experimental and
innovative technologies.
