November 12 – 27, 2010
RSVP on Facebook
#TheSocialGraph is an evolving exploration of the burgeoning field of social media art and the relation of contemporary art with this populist tool as a medium, facilitator, and subject for art.
Starting Wednesday, November 10 and continuing until the end of #TheSocialGraph, Hyperallergic moved from its Williamsburg office to Outpost in Bushwick, where we published and joined discussions that took place in the space. Hyperallergic has played an active role in the evolving discussion online about social media and art through the commissioning of work, its role as a community hub, and as a publication that was created with social media as an integral part of its identity.
While Hyperallergic camped out in Bushwick, artist Man Bartlett had a residency at Hyperallergic HQ in Williamsburg. During this period, Bartlett produced his site-specific work, “#24hKith” (2010), for #TheSocialGraph.
#TheSocialGraph catalogue will be published in early 2011 and will include information about many of the projects.
During the course of #TheSocialGraph, we will be publishing podcasts of interviews, discussions with each of the participants. The following podcasts have already been published:
- Jennifer Dalton Talks Social Media Consumption
- Seychelle OD Allah Talks Space Slave Trade
- James Gilbert Talks “Tweeted, Googled & Inappropriately Touched”
- Nate Hill Talks #TheSocialGraph & the Role of Social Media in his Performance Art
You can also subscribe to all Hyperallergic TV podcasts on iTunes.
The following is the list of participants:
