PATRICK MIKHAIL is exceptionally pleased to announce the representation of New York digital and multi-media artist CLAUDIA HART.  


Claudia Hart was educated in art and architectural history in the late 1970s and early 1980s at NYU and Columbia University. This training remains formative to her digital art practice, one that emerged in the late 1990s after she first exhibited intermedia work for a dozen years in the NY downtown art scene. Hart then transferred her analog practice into the digital space, and has bridged these two worlds ever since. Hart’s strategy is conceptual. She tends to make distinct bodies of work that track an art-historical research, setting herself up as both its subject and its object. Her work is profoundly reflexive and consistently so. 


Hart is considered a pioneering artist in virtual imaging, using 3D animation to make media installations and projections. Later, she investigated other forms of VR, AR, and objects using computer-driven production machines, all adapted from the same computer models. She has taken a feminist position—in a world without women—when she entered the space 27 years ago, inspired by the French media artists of the 1960s.  As a feminist artist, Hart speaks in the voices of patriarchs. She expands on tropes borrowed from canonical philosophers, poets, painters. In addition, Hart inverts the rationalist voice and esthetic language of canonical male patriarchs, turning them into something playful and fantastical. She appropriates sober historical aesthetics, reinventing them as theatrical decor and liminal environments.  


Claudia Hart’s works can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), Whitney Museum of American Art, The New York Public Library, The National Gallery Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, Albertina Museum, Vienna, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, among others.  Her work has appeared in numerous international presentations including The New Museum NYC, and the Eyebeam Center for Art + Technology.  She earned a B.A. in Art History, Summa Cum Laude, from New York University, where she was awarded the Founder’s Award, and an M.S. from Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture.  


Claudia Hart will debut new work with PATRICK MIKHAIL in the upcoming group exhibition “The Theory of Networks” from April 27 to June 29, 2024.
