Mark Callahan is the Artistic Director of Ideas for Creative Exploration (ICE), an interdisciplinary initiative for advanced research in the arts at the University of Georgia, Associate Academic Director for Innovation in the Arts at the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, and serves on the faculty of the Lamar Dodd School of Art. He is a graduate of Cranbrook Academy of Art and the Rhode Island School of Design, where he was a member of the European Honors Program in Rome, Italy.

Callahan's work has evolved from a traditional printmaking background to experimental multimedia projects. He was commissioned to create a site-specific work for "Video Culture: Three Decades of Video Art," a collaboration that joined the forces of eleven institutions in the metro Detroit area to examine video art and its impact on contemporary culture. His work has also been used in concert by R.E.M. as a large-scale video projection. He is the executive producer of AUX, an event and publication series devoted to experimental art in all forms. "Internet Soul Portraits (I.S.P.)" and "24 Hour Miss South Carolina" are part of the Rhizome ArtBase at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York. Recent group exhibitions include "Memery: Imitation, Memory, and Internet Culture" at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), "You All Fell for My Act" at MAMA: Showroom for Media and Moving Art in Rotterdam, and "Game Change: Videogames as Art Medium and Inspiration" at the Telfair Museum in Savannah, Georgia.

Embedded: Living with Technology exhibition

Sat Apr 09, 2005 00:00 - Tue Apr 05, 2005

ATHICA: Athens Institute for Contemporary Art in Athens, Georgia opens "Embedded: Living with Technology" on April 9, 2005, with a dozen international, national and local artists and artist-teams presenting work that reflects the inevitable intertwining of messy, fleshy, mortal humanity with digital-age images, concepts and methodologies. Curated by Lizzie Zucker Saltz, the exhibit runs through Sunday, May 28, 2005.

Funding has been made possible by the Puffin Foundation and by Ideas for Creative Exploration (ICE) an interdisciplinary initiative for advanced research in the arts at the University of Georgia.
