Introduction

The exhibition presents a survey of the work of Luke DuBois, a New York based composer, computer programmer, filmmaker, and installation artist. Operating at the intersection of the visual, performative, and time-based arts, DuBois explores what it means to live in today’s data-saturated world of globalized information. The exhibition includes video, sound, and print-based works ranging from the late 1990s through today. Luke DuBois—Now was organized by the Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota, Florida.
