About the Exhibition

Guest curated by critics from the renowned arts blog Art F City, Providence College Galleries’ inaugural online exhibition Geographically Indeterminate Fantasies: The Animated GIF as Place showcases the work of more than 25 artists who use animated GIFs to present fully-realized environments. With over 100 animated GIFs on display, the exhibition serves as both a vision of artists’ new worlds, and as a document of our own reality’s aspirations and anxieties.

Curated by Art F City’s Paddy Johnson, Michael Anthony Farley & Rea McNamara.
