The Kirkland Arts Center is presenting (Dis)Connected,” now through April 29.

In the exhibit viewers are asked to examine the roles of technology in their everyday lives, specificallyregarding to how it can facilitate or hinder communication.

The ubiquity of information technology coupled with social media platforms has created a digital landscapewhere world events can be shared and commented upon almost instantaneously. The question put forwardin “(Dis)Connected” then is whether this constant connectivity brings people closer together or drives themfurther apart. Short of answering this question for the viewer, “(Dis)Connected” shares the perspective ofvisual artists as they consider these themes in their own practice.

The featured artists are Humaira Abid, Jonathan Wakuda Fischer, Troy Gua, Leslie Harriel and more.

The Kirkland Arts Center is located at 620 Market St. in Kirkland.
