“Global Navigators explores and embodies our fascination with unknown cultures through various media, forms and processes.”
—Murray Horne, Curator, Wood Street Galleries
Part of the Distinctively Dutch Festival, over a dozen visual artists—including Peter Bogers, Gerard Holthuis, Marnix de Nijs, Folkert de Jong, Guido van der Werve and Karen Sargsyan—will be featured in this exhibition that examines the very nature of global exploration. This contemporary Dutch expedition will traverse the terrains of the Internet and new media as well as mine the historical context of Dutch exploration.
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has a long history of presenting visual artists from the Netherlands, including most recently Edwin van der Heide, telcosystems and Informationlab, which created Pittsburgh’s first art+technology public art installation entitled Cell Phone Disco.
