New Digital Art Festival to Launch This Month in Santa Monica

The New Series Will Take Place Across 24 Events at 17 Different Venues

The DNA Festival Santa Monica, a new series celebrating digital art’s impact on global culture, will take place for the first time this year across 24 events at 17 venues. The festival is a collaboration among Santa Monica College, Bergamot Station Arts Center, 18th Street Arts Center, the City of Santa Monica’s Cultural Affairs Division, the Santa Monica Arts Commission, LA ACM SIGGRAPH, and the EZTV Online Museum.

Events of the inaugural DNA Festival include the The ‘Future Perfect’ show at Robert Berman Gallery throughout September; a group show consisting of six artists showcasing varying components of the unification of art and science. From Sept. 7 through Oct. 5, the “King’s Road – Mona Kuhn” art installation at Gallery XII will take place as part of Bergamot Station Art Center’s 30 Year Anniversary Celebration.

Concurrent with The Getty’s PST Art: ‘Art & Science Collide’ events, this year will be the largest culmination of digital arts showcased in the Western Americas, according to its website. The festival kicks off in late June and will run through November.

The Santa Monica College Pete & Susan Barrett Art Gallery will inaugurate the DNA Festival Santa Monica with the exhibition “DNA: 4th of 4,” a digital art retrospective presented by seminal media arts group EZTV and the local chapter of SIGGRAPH, LA ACM SIGGRAPH. 

The “DNA: 4th of 4” exhibition, featuring works by over two dozen digital artists, will run from June 22 through July 21. The opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, June 22, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the SMC Performing Arts Center, 1310 11th Street, Santa Monica.

“DNA: 4th of 4” highlights the evolution of digital art from the early 1980s to the present, featuring artists whose works have appeared at prestigious institutions like the Centre Pompidou, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the J. Paul Getty Museum. The exhibition also includes works by mainstream artists such as Oscar® winner Kevin Mack and Emmy® winners Rebecca Allen and Kate Johnson.
