Allen Emerson is the last of the portraits for the Concept Art Poster.
“R. Allen Emerson is a Conceptual Artist most known for his work in
active and intelligent materials media. He made his name in the New
York circuit winning the Andy Warhol Prize in Experimental and
Performance Arts for his ground-breaking installation “Consciousness
and Mechanism” presented at the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Arts. His
visionary exploration of non-static images of dramatic simplicity, and
his pioneering work in interactive art has made Emerson a leader in the
modern trans-humanist zeitgeist movement.
During his Guggenheim Fellowship term, Mr. Emerson will be in
residence at the International Space Foundation’s colony on the Moon.”
