This year’s Talking Art series focuses on perspectives of Form in Crawl art practices. The first night of the three panels explores artists’ works that use technology, such as artificial intelligence, and augmented reality, or question these new forms of art making. The second night, member artists talk about their work and relationships to creativity and its embodiment. On the final night artists share their perspectives on art for mental health and wellness.
