Join ATNE at Boston Cyberarts Gallery for a special curator’s talk about the history of augmented reality and art while exploring Now You See It… This new exhibition is of augmented reality artworks created by Joseph Farbrook, Carla Gannis, Claudia Hart, Michael Mittelmann and Will Pappenheimer.

The curator, George Fifield is the founding director of Boston Cyberarts Inc., a nonprofit arts organization, which programs numerous art and technology projects, including the Boston Cyberarts Gallery in Jamaica Plain and two large public LED screens in downtown Boston, Art on the Marquee, on the 80 foot video marquee in front of the Boston Convention Center and the Harbor Island Welcome Center screens in the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy. This year, Boston Cyberarts has curated The Augmented Landscape, large augmented reality sculptures at The Salem Maritime National Historic Site. He was executive co-producer for The Electronic Canvas, a documentary on the history of the media arts that aired on PBS in 2000. Fifield writes on a variety of media, technology and art topics for numerous publications. In 2006, the International Association of Art Critics (AICA) Boston Chapter honored Fifield with the First Annual Special Award for Distinguished Contribution to the Arts Community. In 2007 the Boston Cyberarts Festival was the recipient of the Commonwealth Award in the category of Creative Economy.
