Stream Gallery is proud to present DESKTOPS, the first solo exhibition of work by 16-year-old multi-disciplinary Internet artist, Terrell Davis.
Today, the studio space is no longer a separate room that you rent out or are awarded. Today, online and off, the art studio is the Desktop.
DESKTOPS seeks to present work from Terrell Davis that reflects the culmination of influences currently inspiring his hyper-creative and prolific practice. In his words, “vibrant colors, gradients, phones and laptops, Japanese snacks and drinks, remixing old paintings.” Featuring 3-D rendered imagery of desktops featuring these influences, shirts made by Davis using the website to.be, and the second incarnation of the 100% NET GALLERY, a realtime, interactive, 3-D gallery space curated by the Artist, functioning as a show within a show.
A self-described “computer kid”, born during the era of Windows 98/2000 and Microsoft Paint, making his first foray into “net art” during the time of Myspace, customizable HTML profiles and accessible photo editing tools. Davis is a wunderkind in a world obsessed with the concept of Millennials and the “digital native.”
The exhibition will run from Friday, October 17th to Thursday, October 30th, at Stream Gallery on 1196 Myrtle Ave, Bushwick, Brooklyn.
Opening 7pm - 10pm Friday October 17th featuring music by DV-i, who was recently featured in Davis' 100% Net Gallery Mix Series. https://soundcloud.com/d-video
