Christopher Manzione Guest Artist Lecture
Christopher Manzione is currently Assistant Professor in Visual Arts and Technology at Stevens Institute of Technology. He earned his M.F.A. from Rutgers University in 2009. He is founder and director of the Virtual Public Art Project, an organization that uses Augmented Reality to produce original artist works in public space. Manzione most recently curated Space Between the Skies (2016) which employed the power of new simulation-based technologies to remember rather than forget. In addition he was a 2014 Fellowship through Franconia Sculpture, a 2013 Fellow for New Jersey State Council on the Arts, artist-in-residence at William Paterson University’s Center for Computer Art and Animation (2011), Socrates Sculpture Park (Emerging Artist Fellowship, 2010), Vermont Studio Center (Full Fellowship, 2009), Anderson Ranch Arts Center (2009). He has shown nationally and internationally at venues such as the Boston ICA, Abington Arts Center, Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts, the Surry Hills Festival in Melbourne, and Gurzenich Koln Museum in Cologne.
Manzione will present on his two most recent research and projects in using Virtual Reality. The first, To Notice and Remember, was shown at Apex Art in Spring 2016 and the most recent, World and Place Evaporating, was shown as part of Moving Image Fair in NYC.
