The first of its kind, How To Download a Boyfriend is a group art exhibition in the form of an interactive e-book. Featuring images from 50 contemporary artists from New York and elsewhere, HTDAB showcases the most interesting work being created at the intersection of digital and popular culture today.

Curated by the staff of Badlands Unlimited.
