PRINCETON, NJ.- What does it mean to be an artist in a pixelated world? Screen Time: Photography and Video Art in the Internet Age seeks to answer this question with work by a group of global and intergenerational contemporary artists who explore the evolving role of video and photography in the era of digital communication and social media. Their work considers the role of artists in a society in which online culture is omnipresent and new platforms for self-expression are constantly developing.

The exhibition is on view at Art on Hulfish, the Princeton University Art Museum’s photo-forward gallery in downtown Princeton, from May 7 through Aug. 7, 2022.

Spanning three decades, the works on view in Screen Time are by turns wry, playful, nostalgic and critical in their considerations of how the internet has transformed the ways in which we present ourselves, connect with others and engage with the layered technologies that inform our wide-ranging digital experiences. The exhibition explores themes ranging from scientific and geographic systems, ecology and environmentalism and fashion to intellectual property and the influence of social media.

“In bringing together a trenchant selection of contemporary lens-based works, Screen Time affords timely glimpses into the overwhelmingly diverse and abundant responses to the digital information age,” said James Steward, Nancy A. Nasher–David J. Haemisegger, Class of 1976, director.

The exhibition includes Christian Marclay’s iconic montage highlighting the ubiquity of the telephone as a narrative device in classic film; Cyrus Kabiru’s Afrofuturistic eyewear incorporating found electronic waste; one of Marilyn Minter’s besmirched but glamorous photographs evoking online makeup tutorials and fashion advertising; Peter Funch’s Instagram-era digital composites, a modern take on the genre of street photography; and documentation of Otobong Nkanga’s performance work exploring the environmental legacy of colonialism.

Screen Time is curated by Richard Rinehart, director of the Samek Art Museum, Bucknell University, and Phillip Prodger, executive director, Curatorial Exhibitions. The works in this exhibition have been loaned from The EKARD Collection. The exhibition is toured by Curatorial Exhibitions, Pasadena, California.

Art on Hulfish showcases a roster of exhibitions led by photography that consider issues of profound impact on 21st-century life. Located at 11 Hulfish Street in downtown Princeton, it encompasses some 5,500 square feet of space for exhibitions and for public programming, ranging from drop-in activities to scheduled work with artists. Admission is free. The gallery will present four exhibitions each year until late 2024, when the Museum’s new building designed by Sir David Adjaye is projected to open.
