The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
The images and objects of Michael Demers incorporate culture and cultural identity in a synthesis of critical investigation and his own adolescent preoccupation with toys and other weird ephemera. He has exhibited internationally, most recently at the Boston Cyberarts Gallery (Boston, MA), the Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore, MD), and Arteria Internet Livre (Sao Paulo, Brazil). He is a member of the White Columns Artist Registry (New York) and the Rhizome Curated ArtBase (New Museum, New York). He is a contributing author for Net Works: Case Studies in Web Art and Design (Routledge Press) and Foundations of Digital Art and Design (Pearson/New Riders), and is a curator on maps-dna-and-spam. Michael Demers received his BFA from Florida Atlantic University, his MFA from Ohio University, and a Staatliche Hochschule fur Bildende Kunste Diplom from the Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, Munich, Germany.
