Gerald Hushlak was born in Canada in 1944. He studied at the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary and the University of California at Berkeley and after completing his MFA from the Royal College of Art, London in 1973, he won the World Print Competition (1977) hosted jointly by the Smithsonian Institute and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for computer-generated print. He continues to pursue his cross-disciplinary work in art and computer science.
The cutting-edge art technology journal, Leonardo, featured Hushlak and collaborators’ interactive “SwarmArt” work as a cover story in the summer of 2007. With as evolutionary process “BreederArt”, Hushlak lets his system do the construction of art work and he does the selection (or curation). In evolutionary art, initially generated art is put through an iterated process of selection and modification to arrive at a final art product, where it is the artist who is the selective agent.
Hushlak has participated in over 40 solo exhibitions of paintings, sculptures and computer generated imagery throughout his career and, in recent years, he and his colleagues have presented installations, or hardcopy deriving from the installations, in more than a dozen exhibitions, including the Two Rivers Art Gallery, the Nickle Art Gallery and the New York Museum of Science and Technology. Drawings can also be found in the digital collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Hushlak’s hardcopy work is exhibited through a variety of media including canvas, archival paper, lenticular printing, silk, and 3D printing. Each piece is original and not editioned. His most recent exhibition of silk drawings and lenticular prints was at the Chentang Zhuang Art and Technology Museum in Tianjin, China.
