Tadashi Moriyama (MFA '06) in *On/Off the Grid* Exhibit, Opening Sat. Feb. 13, 6:00pm

Tadashi Moriyama (MFA '06) will have work in an exhibit titled *On/Off the Grid* at Irvine Contemporary in Washington DC, opening Saturday, February 13 from 6:00 - 8:00pm.

*On/Off the Grid*, is an
exhibition of works by artists who work with - and against - the concepts of
grids, networks, architecture and abstract systems. Tadashi will be showing with Hasan
Elahi, Adam Fowler, Teo González, Courtney Jordan, Amy Lin, Linn Meyers,
Molly Springfield and Yuriko Yamaguchi.

Playing on all senses of the metaphor "grid," the exhibition features works
that engage with formal systems or embody a critique of moving with, or
against, grids, networks, and a priori abstract structures. Being "on the
grid" today can mean being connected, part of the network, plugged into the
system, knowable and known to others; "off the grid" means the opposite,
disconnected, isolated, inaccessible, unknowable. Networks and grids have
been the main modeling systems for many domains of life--idealized
abstractions, information technology, texts, digital media, social
organization, political power, complexity theory. *On/Off the Grid* presents
a sampling of ways that artists visualize the significance of grids,
networks, and complexity across many artistic mediums.
