Tonight, Jillian Steinhauer will be in conversation with Jason Eppink and Andrew Kuo to discuss memes, GIFs, and digital culture at the ICP.
TAG is a multi-stage artistic experiment that debuted with a collaboration between Jason Eppink (Queens, NY) and Thu Tran (Brooklyn, NY) this May at SPACES.
In a recent panel, San Francisco’s Artstech contingent explored the power of crowd-funding for art. The discussion drove me to a question: How can we help solve some of the problems of crowd-funding and avoid Kickstarter burnout?
Expectation and experience seldom end up at the same destination, especially when you walk down a subway platform and see a sign that reads “To Breuckelen” and realize — no, no, the MTA hasn’t sold the L line back to the Dutch to save money; rather, you are seeing a sign hung by artist Daniel Bejar (not that one) as part of his Get Lost! installation.
Every day New Yorkers wander the gridded streets of the city, traveling to and around subway stations in the morning and under neon signs at night. The study of how a geographic environment like this affects us emotionally and behaviorally is called psychogeography.
Banquet for America is not a feel good slogan for Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign. Banquet for America is the name of a utopian village inside Flux Factory’s 1,500-square-foot project space. The exhibition will be on view to February 12, 2012. I encourage the public to visit.
Jason Eppink has gone and done it. First, he started a water gun fight in a museum, and now he’s taken the beloved Kickstarter art project to a whole new — and very meta — level. He’s not fundraising for a project, he’s not gathering money for some event, he’s not even using Kickstarter … yes, Eppink has launched an art project called Kickbackstarter — emphasis ours — which is designed to help him fund the projects of all his friends.
Jason Eppink describes himself online as an “Urban Alchemist, Rapid Prototyper, Mischief Maker,” so it should come as no surprise that he stirred things up during his February 24 lecture at the Museum of Arts and Design with a water gun fight.
This past weekend may have artistically been notable for having three different open studio events in Brooklyn — Greenpoint, Gowanus, and Crown Heights — but it was also pretty significant because the first-ever Nuit Blanche event in New York, titled Bring to Light, took place in Greenpoint … sorry Gowanus and Crown Heights, you’ll have to wait for yours.
