Interviews

Talking About Creative Time Tweets, Social Media Art Commissions

by Hrag Vartanian on May 23, 2011

This week, Creative Time Tweets begins on Wednesday, March 25 at 5pm with Man Bartlett’s “#24hPort” (2011) Twitter-facilitated performance at Manhattan’s Port Authority bus terminal. The project is the first of three commissions by Creative Time, and one of the first Twitter-based commissions by any major arts organization, which will include works by David Horvitz in June and Jill Magid in July.

Last Friday, I interviewed Creative Time Tweets curator Shane Brennan about the project and here is the video of that Skype conversation.

You can follow along Creative Time Tweets via Creative Time’s Twitter account, @creativetimenyc, and Man Bartlett’s own Twitterfeed, @manbartlett.

Shane Brennan wanted to make the following clarification to his interview:

Ai Weiwei declined to participate in the Creative Time Tweets series due to his busy schedule before his arrest took place.
