Lost Cat: Art in the Age of Social Media, curated by Betty Caroll Fuller and Susan Carr, is now open at the Cape Cod Museum of Art (Dennis, MA). The show focuses “on artists working in some of the new directions in contemporary art—the preeminence of materials, the un-locatable immediacy, confrontation and deconstruction, new understandings of composition and intention, ultimately acknowledging the hand of the artist and the need for community.” Peter Reginato is among the fifty-four artists in this exhibition, which continues through January 16, 2016.
