Visitors of SPRING/BREAK Art Show’s inaugural installation-based iteration, BKLYN IMMERSIVE, will enter the fair through Ring of Fire, a site-specific atrium installation for which Brooklyn-based digital mixed media artist Anne Spalter has created an 800 square foot charcoal sound drawing.
Though Spalter is noted for her contributions to the field of digital art—she founded Brown’s and RISD’s original digital fine arts programs in the 1990s—her drawing-based work can be found in the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Ring of Fire represents an intersection between Spalter’s early drawings and her more recent large scale installation work, such as MTA Arts’ commission of a 52-screen video work currently up at Fulton Center (New York Dreaming) and PULSE Contemporary Art Fair’s inaugural commissioned installation during Miami Arts Week 2016 (Miami Marbles).
