Aaron Terry: Art in the Age of #instagood Production

Aaron Terry’s lecture will examine the flash and cadence of today’s rapid-fire media parade and how he reflects this in his own practice. Sourcing from sound bites, album covers and news media, the work resurrects new conversations with old ghosts, and questions the potential for a better future. He will discuss “truth” in the sea of today’s excessive media. Can truth be determined? Has the virtual become the real? Or vice versa?

Aaron Terry received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. His work has been shown nationally and internationally in Argentina, Chile, Moscow, and Berlin. He works in printmaking, installation and sound pieces. Terry is also a DJ and musician in the band Gold Wood. He organizes art and music-related collaborative events throughout Latin America. He has taught extensively at both SFAI and the California College of the Arts.
