About

The IMC Lab + Gallery

We are a media lab + gallery based in New York City. Since 2001 we have collaborated with artists + coders from 20+ countries, producing 100+ multimedia exhibitions, education events, commercial software apps and interactive installations.

Our work has been featured in parks, museums, movie theaters, stadiums, concerts, on buildings in Times Square and billboards on 7 continents, as well as in our loft space in Manhattan.

Mission

We support artists + coders who explore imaginative uses for new technologies. Together with these diverse teams of designers, programmers and entrepreneurs, we create new works, disruptive tools and killer apps that enable more open forms of interdisciplinary collaboration, expression and education.

We invest in mixed-media that blends virtual and real, bringing new work to market, seeking artists + coders who mix the tactility of objects with the intangibility of virtual spaces, and building augmented, interactive experiences that link people and inspire magic. 

Our goal is to keep fueling the growth of robust start-up ecosystems and creative collectives via new funding models, agile methodologies, unique exhibits in our lab space, research and commercial projects with partner museums, art collectors, investors, Universities, software firms, governments and NGOs.

Background

As a hub for creatives and software developers, The IMC Lab + Gallery aims to connect art, tech research, and education in meaningful ways. Inspired in-part by institutions like Ars Electronica and Tisch ITP, our interdisciplinary studios, lab, and exhibition space, our multimedia shows and live performances, tools and online platforms, all serve to educate and engage the public while helping artists + coders realize new ideas. 

See examples of our art-related work below, or visit StudioIMC.com to learn more about our commercial projects, IMC Expositions and other research areas.

The IMC Lab + Gallery endeavors to help artists & engineers develop & showcase new technologies through shows in our New York City loft, in museums, in public spaces & with firms & non-profits all over the globe.
