Hello! There are a few events that I’m excited to be producing/involved with coming up over the next couple of weeks.
This Friday (tomorrow!) will be our first public program designed within Gray Area Art + Tech’s cultural incubator. The event is the first living incarnation of Chatrooms, the program series I’m co-curating with Morehshin Allahyari, which focuses on elevating the dialogue around contemporary new media art in San Francisco. Don’t miss our screening of the first two episodes of Lorna Mills’ Ways of Something, a remake of the BBC documentary Ways of Seeing, which features 58 all-star net artists. What could be better than drinking a beer and watching the Internet among friends? More info here // RSVP on Facebook.
On the evening of Tuesday, 11/18, I’ll be speaking on a panel at Heron Arts exploring the future of the digital arts landscape, hosted by my friends at Depict. I’m in great company – the panel will be moderated by Alexander Nemerov of Stanford, and joining me on stage will be Anthony Huberman of Wattis Arts, Ceci Moss of YBCA, Dena Beard of The Lab, and fellow Chatrooms curator Morehshin Allahyari. It will be live-streamed – stay tuned to my Twitter for a link early next week. And, if you’d like to attend, RSVP at RSVPSF@depict.com.
Lastly, next Friday will be the second event of Chatrooms! Morehshin and I are guest curating Gray Area’s Creative Code Meetup, as well as creating a one-night-only installation of GIFbites, a group exhibition featuring over 50 artists. The evening will include presentations from artists using online spaces, social media, and shareable imagery to critique, subvert, and expand the possibilities of the digital realm. Featured artists include LaTurbo Avedon, Laura Hyunjhee Kim, Angela Washko, and Tim Roseborough. More info here.
