Panel 2—Artists, Photographers, the Institution, and Digital Culture

Gabriel Barcia-Colombo, mixed media artist and Professor of Interactive Media Arts and ITP, New York University; Elizabeth Kilroy, interactive designer and Chair of New Media Narratives, International Center of Photography; Alan Govenar, writer, photographer, filmmaker, and president of Documentary Arts; Chloë Bass, multiform conceptual artist working in performance, situation, conversation, publication, and installation


Gabriel Barcia-Colombo is a mixed-media artist whose work focuses on collections, memorialization, and the act of leaving one's digital imprint for the next generation. His work takes the form of video sculptures, augmented reality, immersive performances, large-scale projections and vending machines that sell human DNA. Barcia-Colombo was the first artist commissioned to show work at the New Fulton Terminal Stop with the MTA Arts & Design program. His work has been featured in the Volta, Scope, and Art Mrkt art fairs, Victoria & Albert Museum, as well as Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library.

Alan Govenar is a writer, folklorist, photographer, and filmmaker. He is president of Documentary Arts. Govenar has a BA with distinction in American Folklore from Ohio State University, an M.A. in Folklore and Anthropology from the University of Texas at Austin, and a PhD in Arts and Humanities from the University of Texas at Dallas. He is the author of eighteen books. His film, Stoney Knows How, based on his book by the same title about Old School tattoo artist Leonard St. Clair, screened at MoMA and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and was selected as an Outstanding Film of the Year by the London Film Festival.

Elizabeth Kilroy is the chair of the New Media Narratives program at the International Center of Photography. She is an award-winning interactive designer, business owner, and educator. Since 2000 ElizabethK Studio has helped a wide variety of clients create engaging content that harnessed the ever-changing possibilities of the web.

Chloë Bass is a multiform conceptual artist working in performance, situation, conversation, publication, and installation. Her work uses daily life as a site of deep research to address scales of intimacy: where patterns hold and break as group sizes expand. Bass has held numerous fellowships and residencies; 2018’s include a residency at Denniston Hill, the Recess Analog Artist-in-Residence, and a BRIC Media Arts Fellowship. Her projects have appeared at the Knockdown Center, the Kitchen, the Brooklyn Museum, CUE Art Foundation, Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Project Space, the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, the James Gallery, and elsewhere.

Jean-Michel Sanchez is a co-founder of on-situ, which he formed in 2005 with Julien Roger. They develop digital designs that are poetic and explore the relations between art and technology, while enhancing museum visitor experience. Their multimedia installations include Louvre, Paris (Lens, France), Kennedy Center, (Washington DC), and Aga Khan Museum (Toronto, Canada). On-situ and Documentary Arts collaborated in the development of multimedia for the Musée franco-américain du château de Blérancourt.
