Salon-style Exhibitions & Member Events

To grow our collection, we invite curators to select artworks on themes related to technology’s impact on our lives. We host short-run, salon-style exhibitions, where our members are invited for a discussion with the curator, and get to vote on which artworks enter the collection.
