News: Artist Profile: Ty Marshal
Ty Marshal, Curator and Artist in Residence at The Tech Garden — a Connective Corridor venue, is focused on growing the creative tech community, and creating more community linkages between performing and visual arts venues
An interdisciplinary artist whose work focuses on cultural activism, social sculpture, semiotics and theater, Marshal takes a critical view of social, political, historical and cultural issues through visual commentary on human nature and pop culture. A native of the region, he recently returned after a period of working in the downstate area, and brings an impressive background. He worked at the internationally acclaimed Dia Beacon, which houses the Dia Foundation’s impressive collection of contemporary art from the 1960s to the present, and was very involved in the dynamic gallery scene in the Hudson River Valley. He has also been actively involved in the arts renaissance underway in the City of Syracuse. He was one of the organizers and curators of Lipe Art Park and was co-founder of Evolution Art Studio.
“I am focused on seeking ways to explore the intersection of art, technology and science through visual displays, film screenings, discussions, collaborations and other events –with a goal of highlighting Central New York’s position as a center of innovation and creativity,” says Marshal.
The Connective Corridor looks forward to collaborating to make The Tech Garden a more robust venue as part of The Connective Corridor, as well as the City’s cultural and convention district.
