Two Zero Two One, collaboratively curated by artist Kirti Chandak & Malavika Mandal Andrew is an international collaborative art project wherein selected artists over 18 years of age will work in trios, collaborating to create three original artworks, along with each also producing an individual piece all on the theme of “Experiences in Lockdown”, exploring and expanding on the artist’s experiences in the worldwide lockdown that we have found ourselves in since early 2020.

New Day, New Month, New Year, curated by Malavika Mandal Andrew is an interschool Techspressionist (digital) art collaboration wherein two artists between grades 9 to 12, from different schools work together to create two artworks on the theme of “Happy Moments in Time, 2020 – 2021”.

About Colin Goldberg

Colin Goldberg is a Bronx-born artist whose work explores the relationship between technology and personal expression. He was born in the Bronx, NY to parents of Japanese and Jewish ancestry. The artist is a recipient of grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts. Goldberg coined the term “Techspressionism” as the title for a solo exhibition in Southampton NY in 2011. It was first described as a movement in the 2014 WIRED article “If Picasso had a Macbook Pro” and later elaborated upon in a 2015 interview on the PBS show Art Loft. In 2020, Goldberg began development of Techspressionism as a collaborative social sculpture with curator and critic Helen Harrison and artists Patrick Lichty, Steve Miller, and Oz Van Rosen.
