Schwartz was at the forefront of computer-generated art before desktops or the kind of software that makes it commonplace today.
This list barely scratches the surface of the city’s artistic offerings this year, from overdue retrospectives to surprising sides of artists we know well.
Although Schwartz has been producing computer art since the ’60s, she’s only now receiving her first solo exhibition in New York.
It’s hard now to go more than a couple months without stumbling across another exhibition showing “artists [who] question the boundary between art and technology.” It’s enough to make you never give another crap about the boundary between art and technology. But I’m not sure the artists involved in such shows really do either — at least not the ones in Coded After Lovelace.
