  • Description

    Please join us in Midway’s library at 7pm for a talk by Brooklyn-based artist James Hoff. Following the talk, Hoff will perform Blaster in the main gallery space.

    James Hoff’s multifaceted output includes sound, painting, writing, performance, and publishing. In his installation work, Hoff often uses objects and drawings in order to question the meaning of abstraction within the context of art. Documenting his exploration of computer viruses in both visual and sonic contexts, Hoff infects digital data of images and sounds producing new imagery and compositions. In 2006, he co-founded Primary Information, a non-profit arts organization dedicated to publishing artists’ books and art-historical documents. He has lectured throughout Europe and the United States at venues such as the MCA (Denver, CO), the Pompidou (Paris, France), the Sorbonne (Paris, France), Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (Nova Scotia, Canada), and the National Academy of Art (Oslo, Norway).
