This exhibition surveys a small subsection of fine art workers within this growing subulture of image-makers. Focusing on work that engages both the language of the Internet and fine art, this exhibition aims to articulate the value of the GIF in the context of the gallery. Participating artists include Duncan Alexander, Kevin Bewersdorf, Saul Chernick, Petra Cortright, Stephanie Davidson, dump.fm, MTAA (Tim Widden and Michael Sarff), Lorna Mills, Tom Moody, Marcin Ramocki, Ryder Ripps and Spirit Surfers.
