Join artist and curator Peter Wu+ as he shares his motivations, experiences, and learnings from creating EPOCH Gallery, a virtual artist-centric gallery launched during quarantine.
Peter Wu+ generates artworks and immersive environments utilizing modeling and rendering software, projection mapping, 3D printing, and machine learning. Through speculative fiction, Wu+’s artwork investigates our estrangement associated with technological advancement and modernity. In 2020, he founded and created EPOCH, an artist-run virtual experiment that functions as an inclusive community building platform inviting established and emerging artists working in both digital and analog mediums to participate. Being primarily artist-centric, EPOCH has established itself as a virtual destination that challenges the status quo with its critical and innovative approach to curation and exhibition building. In 2019, Wu+ was awarded the COLA Individual Artist Fellowship and the Public Art Division commission with Los Angeles World Airports Arts Exhibition Program to be completed in 2022. He received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and his BFA from the University of Windsor. Wu+ lives and works in Los Angeles.
