Closing Exhibition & Reception For POWRPLNT at Hunter's East Harlem Gallery

On Thursday, September 3, the Hunter College East Harlem Gallery hosted the closing party for the educational art project POWRPLNT East Harlem: Digital Art Collaboratory + Indoor Garden.

POWRPLNT, a pop-up digital art laboratory and workshop for teens founded by artist Angelina Dreem, stationed its third incarnation of the project this summer at Hunter’s East Harlem Gallery. The closing exhibition presented works created by teens this summer, including 3D sculpture, printed zines, a mixtape of music produced, and video pieces.

The show featured the unveiling of 17-year-old artist Terrell Davis’ TENSQUARED Gallery (formerly 100% Net Gallery), a virtual 3D gallery that was toured in the space using Oculus Rift. This online gallery featured an extensive view of the work made throughout the eight-week installation.

The closing party also featured a DJ set by SHYBOI and a live performance by the producer and video artist D Nilsz.

POWRPLNT provides free new-media art classes for teens and workshops for adults, and curates events that promote technology and art for all. POWRPLNT has been hosted at Stream Gallery in Bushwick and Red Bull Studios in Chelsea, and the closing reception at the East Harlem Gallery concluded its most recent run. Their goal is to provide a public arts education program that expands creative engagement with technology.
