About

.paint examines how the traditional art form of painting is being redefined with digital tools, opening up unprecedented new possibilities. By merging and maintaining the craft of painting with digital technologies including photoshop, mobile devices, and inkjet printing, these artists bridge the physical and digital worlds.

.paint is organized by James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator Michael Darling, with Harry C. H. Choi, Marjorie Susman Curatorial Fellow.
