The Artist is Online (and at Berlin’s König Galerie)

A survey of painting and sculpture in the post-digital age, “The Artist Is Online” opens at König Galerie, Berlin. Showing 70 works by 50 ‘at home on social media’ artists such as Gretchen Andrew, Ben Elliot, Miao Ying, and Chloe Wise, curator Anika Meier demonstrates how the attention economy has redeemed the medium. “Painting has become a mashup where the Old Masters, Surrealism, Pop Art, and Post-Internet Art are sampled,” she writes. “The result is portraits of people, bodies, and animals that lose themselves in pathetic poses.”
