The IMC Lab + Gallery is a research lab and media art gallery based in New York City.
Our mission is to support artists and programmers by featuring their work in art shows, funding technology research, providing collaborative facilities for art-making, and finding commercial applications for new technologies.
The IMC Lab + Gallery is a model for art and technology research in the 21st century, partially inspired by institutions like Ars Electronica Center in Linz Austria which has both an art museum and a research lab.
We are dedicated to exploring the convergence of Virtual and Real in art and culture, placing digital artworks in galleries, museums and private collections, as well as developing technology tools with commercial applications. We endeavour to support artists and programmers who blend the tactility of objects with the intangibility of virtual spaces, creating interactive experiences that link people and inspire a sense of magic.
Keep an eye on TheIMClab.com for announcements about upcoming shows, as well as our new artist database and research + residency programs.
