Ahead of today’s vote, angry Brexiteers have called for the gallery to lose its charitable status for exhibiting Jonas Lund’s project about “online manipulation tactics” that can influence voting.
MIAMI BEACH — The Untitled art fair may take place in a stark white tent with a hot pink slice cut into it, but the work inside is every color of the rainbow. In fact, “rainbow” is the most common palette at the fair this year: every other booth seems to feature at least one work in which yellow shifts to red, purple, blue, green, and back.
BERKELEY, California — Whatever definition for art you hold dear, quality art often offers the viewer a chance to challenge that definition and a new means to look at the world. New perspectives are important: they disrupt our expectations, allowing for new ways of thinking, new dialogues, and new ideas. A particularly interesting genre of internet art offers the same possibility. Rather than the single URL-based work that links nowhere, works that embrace the internet’s networked structure allow us to engage and explore the internet in an entirely new way. These works give us new ways to browse.
Jonas Lund’s new work “This Click in Time” is an internet art piece whose aesthetics relies on and is created by the viewer.
