Techspressionist Salons are bi-weekly artist meetups where artists can present their work and discuss matters relating to art and technology. The First Techspressionist Salon was held on September 1, 2020, and included artists Colin Goldberg, Patrick Lichty, Steve Miller and Oz Van Rosen, as well as group advisor Helen Harrison. During this session, the working definition of Techspressionism was decided upon by the participants as: “An artistic approach in which technology is utilized as a means to express emotional experience.”
Our Salons are attended by artists listed in our Techspressionist Artists Index and are also open to interested individuals via the event registration button below. The meetup was conceived as a modern counterpart to the Surrealist salons of the 1920’s, in which artists could meet informally to socialize and discuss ideas. Each meetup opens with short (20 minute) artist presentations, followed by Q&A, and then open discussion. Salons are recorded for posterity and published to our YouTube Channel. An archive of past Techspressionist Salons also resides on this webpage.
