Sean Hovendick curated the refreshing exhibition Techno_Culture that just opened at the Redhouse Arts Center on April 16. The exhibition includes innovative work by artists Stephen Belovarich, Wafaa Bilal, Meggan Gould, Michael Heroux, Shawn Lawson, Olivia Robinson, Alicia Ross and Chris Prior. Syracuse does not have an abundance of exhibition spaces, so it is great when the existing galleries shine with exemplary exhibitions that are truly contemporary. In late May, the exhibition will be traveling to the Dowd Gallery at SUNY Cortland in an expanded version featuring additional artists.
We’ve known Sean for many years. He has taught at Light Work’s Community Darkrooms and recently redesigned our website. Somehow Sean finds the time to teach full-time at Syracuse University, make new work and curate exhibitions. We were pleasantly surprised that this exhibition includes Meggan Gould, who is scheduled to participate in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program this summer.
