Exhibition  UCSC's Digital Arts and New Media MFA exhibition: NEW ALCHEMY

by Laura Gonzales

"Whatever your gender, your body is politicised in ways you cannot control. If you are female, or gender queer, there is also a fight against power. The works in Body Anxiety specifically problematise the image of women in the media and in the art world. Women artists, they claim with good arguments, are powerless; sothe show gives time and space to a group of artists the curators call ‘female painters’. She recontextualises painting for this exhibition, where most artists use their own bodies as canvases for video performances, sound works, photographs and writing. Perhaps this is peinture féminine to Helene Cixous’ écriture féminine." >>complete article>>

Publication  Mainframe Experimentalism

By Bob Myers

Early Computing And The Foundations Of The Digital Arts
Edited by Hannah B Higgins and Douglas Kahn
University of California Press, 2012
ISBN 978-0-520-26838-8

"The history of arts computing's heroic age is a family affair in Hannah B Higgins and Douglas Kahn's Mainframe Experimentalism. Starting with the founding legend of the FORTRAN programming workshops that one of the editors' parents led in their New York apartment in the 60s, the book quickly broadens across continents and decades to cover the mainframe and minicomputer period of digital art. Several of the chapters are also written by children of the artists. Can they make the case that the work they grew up with is of wider interest and value?"
Exhibition  Deconstructing the Narrative; Making the Illusive Physical

Curated by Georgina Gomez

"Visualising cognitive processes such as thoughts, emotions and ideas can present the conceptual as physical; externalising them so that they can be preserved to memory. Joseph Campbell, a theorist on narrative structures, wrote “Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning.” All the artworks exhibited are “alive” and interactive, whether their narrative structure is discarded or embraced. Fictive or real, these pieces take the formerly passive observer of narrative form and force viewers to create an individualised, illusional “story-scape”. The amorphous nature of such visual envisioning echoes the structural boundlessness of the internet itself, and of human consciousness. "


Exhibition  The Hinges of "Reality"

Curated by Thomas Osborne

"This exhibition seeks to delve into the immensely dense conflict that is the defining of reality. For many the existential (I'm using this term loosely) question tends to be the utmost important question one asks in today's authority obsessed culture. This exhibit seeks to ask why is some information more valid than other sorts? What is the nature of the very concept of "idea", of "thought" and "expression"? The artworks presented here have thus been chosen specifically for a subversive, or sampling quality that pulls from information from what "exists" as a concrete aspect of our culture, such as the assumed verisimilitude of the news in "Fake is a Fake", and either allows the expansion of information for self-reflection, or for a further artistic purpose.The exhibit will also display pieces that have to do with how identity is performed and how interactions are made through the medium of the internet. "



Exhibition  Identity - Expression Through Multiple Mediums

Curated by Elizabeth De Leon

"My inspiration for this project was Danah Boyd's idea of "Identity Performance" and how identity can be expressed online through text, image, audio and video. Identity as a form of self expression has, over time, succumbed to society's stereotypical notions of what the "perfect" identity should be(What the perfect image of oneself should be).
First of all, what does the politics of identity entail? How a person looks, acts, or what a person does. These notions are constantly changing and what today may be considered as beautiful and is excepted, tomorrow it may be rejected. In any case, the way identity is expressed will always evolve and what we hold to be the ideal identity, will change as well. Nonetheless, what this exhibition attempts to do, is showcase different methods in which multiple individuals portray their own versions of how identity can be expressed and what identity is to them."



Exhibition  Do You Follow? Art in Circulation at ICA London at The Old Selfridges Hotel in London

Curated by Michael Connor 

"With the screen arguably now the primary site of encounter for contemporary art, this talks series, taking place as part of ICA Off-Site: The Old Selfridges Hotel, examines the ways in which internet circulation has affected art practice and art's function."Do You Follow? Art in Circulation" begins with the premise that images do not merely depict their surrounding reality, but actively produce and shape it in economic, social, and physical ways. With the advent of the internet, the image's power to effect such transformation has greatly expanded. As a result, image production is by default a posthuman process, subject to the demands of global flows. Images circulating on a network may produce far-flung realities, in unpredictable ways. Some even claim that the world is becoming an image."



Exhibition
 
Somebody, An evening with Miranda July

the New Museum, New York City

"Join prolific artist and filmmaker Miranda July for a special evening where she will describe and demo her new text-messaging service: Somebody™. The service, an iOS application available for free download via the iTunes Store, continues July’s longstanding exploration of ways to humanize our interactions with technology. She describes the operation of the application in the following way: “When you send your friend a message through Somebody, it goes—not to your friend—but to the Somebody user nearest your friend. This person (probably a stranger) delivers the message verbally, acting as your stand-in.”


Seven on Seven London

at Barbican Centre

Seven on Seven pairs seven leading artists with seven luminary technologists, and challenges them to develop something new—be it an application, social media, artwork, product, or whatever they imagine—over the course of a single day. They unveil these ideas for the first time at this event.

Loosely inspired by what was to become Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T)’s 1966 event 9 Evenings, Seven on Seven examines the current nature of collaboration in art and technology — and the role of each in contemporary culture — by generating deep conversation between two leading figures.

The Barbican event, organized by Rhizome, marks the first London version of a four time sold-out conference. Past Seven on Seven teams have included David Karp (Tumblr) with Ryan Trecartin, Aaron Swartz (DemandProgress) with Taryn Simon, Dennis Crowley (Foursquare) with Jill Magid and more.

NEWS  Winter 2015 Special Issue released!

For this special edition we had the chance to interview 12 artists from the international scenario whose works establishe an effective combination between conceptual and socio politicised practice, giving birth to a stimulating mix of pure art and deep social engagement.
Their refined multidisciplinary approaches give life to an incessant process of recontextualization, that provides the viewers of an extension ofthe basic human perception, in order to manipulate it, releasing it from its mostprimordial, limbic parameters.
Overtly playin with the unheimlich nature of gestural movements and sound, as well as traditional brushstrokes and photography, their pieces reveal the tendency to exist in continuum, residing somewhere in our collective memory.
We are particularly pleased to introduce our readers to their multifaceted artistic productions.

"The majority of my work is conceptual, and I will sit for hours at a desk trying to
find the right structure and symbolism."

Nathalie
Borowski

"My research is
oriented towards a dreamlike, reflection of an allegory of our cells, phenotypic in nature, of their own
identity, trying to transform reality.
"

images function
through a long line of
experimentation."

some seed of context that is neglected, in tension
or resonates as a problem.
"

fantasy. Despite the remoteness of my life
with photography, our paths intersect"
Olga

Call for Artists  Peripheral ARTeries is inviting entries for the competition to find the most interesting emerging worldwide artists in various fine arts disciplines.

The contest, on its 6th edition, comes under the sign of collaborative networking and will once again explore and show current trends and tendencies in Contemporary Art.

All we aim to is to encouraging artists to innovate and create. Accordingly, artists worldwide at any career-stage can submit their works. Several kinds of art are welcomed, even though we use to focus on visual arts. Each artist may submit a maximum of three works made in any technique:


  • Video Art & Short Film
  • Fine Art Photography
  • Painting
  • Experimental Media
  • Mixed Media
  • Installation
  • Public Art
  • Performance

Even though we are open to all proposed forms of art and media, we use to focus to works which causes people to reflect on the larger community and a kind of art capable of changelling the viewers’ traditional perspective on art itself. This competition aims to give the impetus and opportunity to artists to work between the boundaries of  Contemporary Art.
