The Smithsonian American Art Museum and its Renwick Gallery are now open, with timed-entry passes required for the main building. All public programs are online only, on-site public tours and events are currently suspended.
Watch This! Revelations in Media Art presents pioneering and contemporary artworks that trace the evolution of a continuously emerging medium. The exhibition celebrates artists who are engaged in a creative revolution—one shaped as much by developments in science and technology as by style or medium—and explores the pervasive interdependence between technology and contemporary culture.
