EXHIBITION TOUR: McNaughton Collection

April 23, 2022 @ 5:00 pm EDT - 6:00 pm EDT EDT

Hot Air McNaughton Art Gate district metaverse

Join a guided exhibition tour lead by Brendon McNaughton.

Brendon McNaughton is a multidisciplinary contemporary artist and the co-founder of Art Gate VR. He received a B.F.A. with honours from York University and is an advisor to the Dean of York’s School of the Arts, Media, Performance and Design (AMPD), Sarah Bay-Cheng. McNaughton began exhibiting his work in 2010. Since then his sculptures have been presented in major exhibitions at Corkin Gallery, OCAD’s Onsite Gallery, the Palazzo Loredan in Venice, Italy and in Virtual Reality. McNaughton’s work has attracted widespread attention, his pieces forming part of both private and public collections.

McNaughton explores how technology is transforming social and economic structures across the globe. To create his large-scale marble, bronze and aluminum works, he uses frontier technologies such as 3D printers, carving robots, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence. McNaughton’s work marks a transitional moment in history away from the machine-like behaviour of people as conceived by Pop Art. His blending of art and technology aims to establish a cultural identity within the rapid technological evolutions in contemporary times.

“Bridging the gap between art, science and technology in daring, innovative ways, Brendon McNaughton is one of the up-and coming transnational and transdisciplinary exemplars of the third Millennium. He capitalizes on the value of artistic heritage from the ancient Greeks to the masters of the 20th and 21st centuries, while constantly experimenting in the latest mediums to express his own artistic vision.” -Dr. Francesca Valente
