Short Cuts – CentrePasquArt Maps 50 Years of Invention and Influence in Art and Design

When dazzled by the latest in ‘magical’ machinations, it’s easy to mistake a clever project deploying cutting edge technology as radical or new. As work by (popular) contemporary media artists and designers accumulates and ricochets across the web, it tends to further obscure the pioneers that paved the way. Short Cuts, the current exhibition (18 April to 14 June 2015) at the CentrePasquArt / Kunsthaus Centre d'art in Biel, Switzerland, endeavors to bridge the generational gap by showing fifty years of work representing the intersection of art, design, and technology under one roof. From the early kinetic sculptures, mediated experiments, and plotter drawings of the 1960s and 70s (François Morellet, Karl Gerstner, Vera Molnar) to the inventive installation and software works we see today (Casey Reas, Jürg Lehni, Troika) – Short Cuts allows viewers to trace ideas, influences, and positions by inspecting works that are separated by decades by merely taking a few steps.
