‘Changing Channels’ Art Exhibition Explores Effects of Television on Visual Art
The Michael Sickler Gallery at Syracuse University is exhibiting artwork from student artists whose childhoods were impacted by days in front of cable TV screens. Curated by Edam Alvarado, “Changing Channels” includes a television installation and artworks that incorporate colors reminiscent of popular animated shows from the ’90s and early 2000s. Pastel and fluorescent pinks, blues and yellows fill the gallery space with nostalgia for shows like “Rugrats,” “Spongebob,” “Courage the Cowardly Dog,” “Hey Arnold!,” “The Powerpuff Girls” and” Ed, Edd n Eddy.”
Artists Edam Alvarado, Madeline Bartley, Sage Cruz Field, Nic Dean, Yegor Mikushki, and Paul Weiner are represented in the show, which includes two dimensional works, sculptures, an installation and video art.
The public is welcome to attend the exhibition’s closing reception on Friday, Sept. 26, from 6-7 p.m. at the gallery. Food and refreshments will be provided. The Michael Sickler Gallery is located on the fourth floor of Shaffer Art Building.
