The AI-powered art exhibition Forging the Gods portrays the interaction between humans and machines in a nuanced manner.
“THE FUTURE IS NOW,” reads the header from the online bill for Versions: The Creative Landscape of Virtual Reality, a conference held earlier this month at the New Museum, co-presented by NEW INC and Kill Screen.
Last night’s opening of the Emoji Art and Design Show was a light-hearted celebration of those pictograms that have crept into our conversations and lives in every which way. The exhibition felt more design than art, and the pop-up marketplace featured a number of — you guessed it — emoji-related products.
Artists in the digital age and presenting art online, as well as exhibiting online art in offline spaces, were the focus of a couple of panels at Internet Week, a citywide festival examining the digital landscape that was held May 14 to 21.
We listed tonight’s #ArtsTech social media art panel in last week’s Art Rx and — as expected — it’s sold out! Over 125 people have RSVPs and the waiting list is 75 people deep. Thankfully the group has decided to livestream the event tonight between 7:30 and 9pm EST.
On September 9, the new midtown “de-junked” fast food restaurant 4food hosted the public opening of the second iteration of Julia Kaganskiy and Karen Bookatz’s migrating Blue Box Gallery. Dedicated to exhibiting new media art in alternative spaces, they also succeeded in using a space that would attract large numbers of people who would not typically be exposed to this type of art.
A year ago, Julia Kaganskiy (aka @juliaxgulia) quietly began the Arts, Culture and Technology group in New York on Meetup.com. It was a simple idea: link up geeks with a love of culture. It may sound obvious in the art capital of the world but Julia was the first person to think it up and follow through.
