Painter turned video artist and animator Philip Vanderhyden will display his work in the latest Elder Gallery exhibit, “Dependency Graph.”
The exhibit runs October 18 through December 10. Vanderhyden will give an artist talk on Wednesday, October 18 at 5:30 p.m. in Lucas Hall, room 206. A reception will be held Friday, November 17 from 5 to 7 p.m. with an artist performance with musician Stuart Argabright at 6 p.m. in Elder Gallery.
Vanderhyden lives and works in New York and has exhibited extensively. His paintings, videos and projects have been reviewed in Art in America, Artforum, and the New York Times. In 2014, he concluded a three-year project of forensically reconstructing the work of late artist Gretchen Bender. He has since been working primarily on large-scale, video-based wall works, which investigate cross currents between the languages of finance, painting, virtual reality and advertising.
For the show, “Dependency Graph,” Vanderhyden looks at high-tech approaches to image making, using the same software that operates in stunning visual effects sequences from Hollywood movies, video games and advertisements.
Elder Gallery is located inside the Rogers Center for Fine Arts at 50th Street and Huntington Ave. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday-Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m.
