Formerly a Benedictine monk at Saint Vincent, Roman Verostko is a key figure in the development of generative, algorithmic art. Curated by Kerry Morgan and Melanie Pankau at Minneapolis College of Art and Design the exhibition features over seventy original works from Saint Vincent’s holdings. Verostko’s retrospective exhibition is organized around major themes that appear throughout Verostko’s work such as his search for an art of pure form, his interest in logic and language, his merging of Eastern and Western aesthetics and philosophy, and his understanding of his home “Pathway Studio” as a modern day electronic scriptorium.
