Test Patterns

Curated by Kelly Rae Aldridge, coordinated & documented by Sydney Gobin, operated by Ludi Leiva, Josh Peterson, Joy Peng, and Mason Poli. Volunteers included Anna Talley, Brooke Stone, and Nancy DaSilva.

In the Fall of 2016, The Current invited artists, technologists, scholars, and the art-curious to 60 Sullivan Street, NYC for a series of tests and discussions exploring the future of museums and digital art.

Over 350 visitors saw the show, we held a sold-out closing dance party for nearly 200 people, and our artist-in-residence, Hyphen-Labs, was accepted into Sundance's New Frontier.

Forbes, Bedford & Bowery, The Creators Project, Artnet, and NY Mag all had nice things to say. ArtFCity described the basement as "a totally bonkers, holodeck-style install...like more than a dozen must-see exhibitions in one night."
