“Art at its most significant is a distant early warning system that can always be relied on to tell the old culture what is beginning to happen”. – Marshall McLuhan

Artists, as McLuhan described them, are the Distant Early Warning system of our culture. This exhibition and public performance explores the confluences between technology, poetry, artistic practice, and the influences of McLuhan’s vision in our time.

On November 8th, as part of the McLuhan 100 conference and DEW Line Festival, join us for an evening of art, poetry and celebration of McLuhan’s vision 100 years later. From Facebook, to the city streets and imaginary glimpses at a new landscape after global warming, artists, poets and new media projects present cultural reflections on the state of the Global Village.

Signals from the DEW Line is a curatorial collaboration by Andrea Thompson and Britt Welter-Nolan.  http://tinyurl.com/6jdxvqx
