WRO 2013: WRO 2013

WRO 2013: WRO 2013 | The Multimedial Museum | Scoop.it

The theme of the WRO 2013 Biennale, marking the 50th anniversary of electronic art, will be the artistic and cultural values that have emerged – and are still emerging – from new media art.

 

Looking at it in historical terms, for several decades artists in the early phases of video and computer art raised issues and questions that not only foretold changes that would soon affect us all, but were also significant forces in bringing those changes about.

 

The appearance of new, previously unavailable tools for creative expression led to a redefinition of art. Media artists were participants in the emergence of new realms of communication and creativity and in shaping the cultural and social realities of the future. Now those realms and realities are universally experienced, underlying delineating society's patterns of awareness and functioning.

 

During the WRO 2013 Biennale, entitled Pioneering Values, we want to present current works that deal with the relations between new media art and the ubiquitous cultural creativity that surrounds it, taking innovative approaches to the intellectual challenges and demands of our era.

 

WRO 2013: Pioneering Values will highlight new visions that allude to the past, distill the present and offer intuitive glimpses of the future.

Perspectives of a collection, 16.06.2012-28.04.2013
- Exhibition. How does media art define itself in the course of an almost 40-year-old collection? What changes, what comes to form a whole, what was overlooked and where does it go from here?

 

The exhibition media.art.collecting deals with collecting activities at the Neue Galerie in Graz in the area of media art, the essence of which becomes evident in the spectrum of exhibitions held over the past 40 years. Building on the 2009 exhibition Rewind/Fast Forward at the Neue Galerie Graz and its first-ever survey of the institution’s video art collection, the current exhibition media.art.collecting. Perspectives of a collection will offer a broader view of other parts of the collection such as installation and photography, but also of what is missing and desired. Changing every eight weeks, the exhibition will manifest as an evolving structure of relationships and historical as well as current desiderata.

Rafael Lozano-Hemme, Open Air (20 September–14 October 2012)

Rafael Lozano-Hemme, Open Air (20 September–14 October 2012) | The Multimedial Museum | Scoop.it

The Association for Public Art in Philadelphia presents the world premiere of Open Air by Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. Open Air is a spectacular interactive light experience directed by participants' voices and GPS locations, illuminating the night sky from Philadelphia's historic Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

 

Inspired by the city's rich tradition of democracy and respect for free speech, Open Air was created specifically for Philadelphia and for participation by the general public. Using a free mobile app developed by Lozano-Hemmer's studio, participants are invited to record and submit messages of up to 30 seconds in length—shout-outs, poems, songs, rants, dedications, proposals. In response, 24 powerful robotic searchlights, stationed strategically along a half-mile section of the Parkway, will create a unique, dynamic light formation in the sky. The lights will respond in brightness and position to the GPS location of the participants and the frequency and amplitude of their voice recording, which can be heard through the app, the project website or public speakers located at the Project Information Center at Eakins Oval (24th Street and the Parkway).

 

Priority will be given to those submitting messages from the Parkway, but for those not onsite, the project website, www.openairphilly.net, will allow users to record messages that will be archived and played back by the lights if other web visitors rate them highly. All participants will have a personalized webpage created automatically with their message, comments and images of the light sculptures that their voice created.

 

The free "Open Air Philly" app will be available from the iTunes store starting Sept. 20.

Thinking Aloud

John Cage, "Lecture on the Weather" (1976).

 

The performance starts with the reading of the preface. In it Cage expresses his disgust with the institutions of American government. After that the work starts, the 12 men reading and singing text fragments by Henry David Thoreau, and/or play instruments (ad lib.). In part 1 this is accompanied by sounds (on tape) of wind and in part 2 by sounds of rain. In the third part the lights in the performance-space are dimmed and the performers are accompanied by the film and the sounds of thunder. The film consists of Thoreau drawings, printed in negative, the projection resembling lightning (white on black). The performers have to agree on a total duration of the work (between 5 to 8 periods of 273 seconds, resulting in durations as mentioned above). Every performer creates his own program of starts and breaks, covering the duration of the composition. The work was commissioned by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Extract from new Director of the NGV, Tony Ellwood's speech to the Melbourne Press Club

Extract from new Director of the NGV, Tony Ellwood's speech to the Melbourne Press Club | The Multimedial Museum | Scoop.it

"The real challenge is not just to satisfy their [gallery audience/visitors] expectations but to anticipate them, to develop our collections and deliver programs that are expected from a leading art museum of the 21st century.

 

Familiarity with new technologies that have transformed the way in which we receive, process and interact with information, the ability to quickly and easily access almost limitless quantities of knowledge at the push of the button, and the rapid adoption of interactive and social media have had a considerable impact on what audiences expect of today’s art museum. In fact incorporating technology into exhibition design is crucial to our future success. Museums need to provide an expanded range of platforms for the information we share with audiences and technology is the perfect driver for this. Whether it is through QR coded labels or touch screens or David Walsh’s infamous ‘art wank’ button on the hand held interactive you receive with your ticket to MONA, these assets are becoming dynamic resources. The next generation is accustomed to technological opportunities and solutions in all facets of education and entertainment.

 

Increasingly, all visitors expect some level of inclusion in how they encounter and interpret art objects and exhibition displays. This sense of inclusiveness is something that many contemporary artists are already addressing. So much of the contemporary art that is being produced now requires some level of audience participation. Many artists take an almost collaborative approach to their work, giving audiences an active, even creative role to play. Viewing art has become more and more of an immersive experience in which the audience has become part of the artistic process."

The Art Domain

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has recently announced the list of companies that have applied to open and manage these new top-level domain names. Nearly 2000 applications were submitted before the application process closed, and more than 500 new internet domains will be approved within a year, from .baby to .berlin to .bbc.

 

Because of the importance of naming protocols for the most basic functions of the internet, the new top-level domains can be compared to producing a completely new form of online real estate. This means that many companies and venture capital firms have also applied to administer many top-level domain names such as .Art with the hopes of making quick money, yet they lack the ability to maintain the resonance of the domain for the people who give substance and meaning to it.

 

e-flux is the only applicant from within the art community to apply for the .Art domain.

While most Western countries are experiencing fiscal austerity and slower growth, some of the emerging nations within the Asian continent are handling the strong forces of rapid progression. For centuries the West used to be the economical and cultural center of attention. Now there is an important shift of focus to Asia, a continent that has seen vibrant and innovative developments undergoing economic, cultural and social change, whilst its population calling for more open and democratic structures within society.

Sharjah Biennial 11 (March 13–May 13, 2013)

Sharjah Biennial 11 (March 13–May 13, 2013) | The Multimedial Museum | Scoop.it
Sharjah Biennial 11 Curatorial Concept:


For the Biennial's upcoming edition, Yuko Hasegawa has begun to look at artworks and practices that resonate with strands of the Sharjah Biennial 11 theme: complexity and diversity of cultures and societies; spatial and political relations; notions of new forms of contact, dialogue and exchange; and production through art and architectural practices of new ways of knowing, thinking and feeling.

 

Hasegawa was inspired by the courtyard in Islamic architecture—in particular the historical courtyards of Sharjah—where elements of both public and private life intertwine, where the objective political world and the introspective subjective space intersect and cross over. What sorts of encounter and exchange do they make possible? What are the ambiguities of such 'open-closed' spaces—and their potentials?

 

The courtyard is also seen as a "plane of experience and experimentation"—an arena for learning and critical thinking of a discursive and embodied kind. It marks a generative space for the production of new awareness and knowledge. Within the network of intensifying international and globalising links, the courtyard as an experiential and experimental space comes to mirror something of Sharjah as a vital zone of work, labour and creativity, of transmission and transformation, of cosmopolitanising forces from below.

 

Hasegawa states, "I am inviting a selection of architects and practitioners from Lebanon, India, Belgium, Japan, Spain and elsewhere to create temporary architectural interventions that will help envision new urban structures that connect Sharjah's historic area and its courtyard typology with the larger city. Within these new and traditional structures, a range of artists will be invited to create works, performances and events that will explore and articulate new forms of shared experience. Here the courtyard becomes more than a 'familiar dwelling place'—it becomes a 'condition' of production, a launch pad of new artistic and cultural experience and knowledge."

SpontaneousInterventions at Venice Biennale

SpontaneousInterventions at Venice Biennale | The Multimedial Museum | Scoop.it

Congratulations to Erik Adigaard and his collaborators on "SpontaneousInterventions" (U.S. Pavilion) winning the Jury's Special Mention at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale. Gold goes to the Japanese Pavilion and Urban Think Tank)

 

The S.I. team includes Cathy Lang Ho curator/commissioner; Freecell, exhibition design; M-A-D, exhibition/communications design; and Interboro, courtyard design.

 

"SpontaneousInterventions: design actions for the common good" is a record of 124 remakings of the city, each of which is a deliberate grassroots intervention to rapidly improve urban life. These projects are efforts to remake ourselves by remaking the city, to assert the importance of equity, convenience, and pleasure in everyday life by addressing areas that the “system” has neglected, misunderstood, or undermined. S.I. exhibition is a celebration not simply of the power of local initiative and creativity but an argument for the importance of inductive processes in a field dominated by the top-down, by big power, and by frozen formulas.

 

Information can also be found on M-A-D's exhibit poster [http://m-a-d.com/M-A-D_SI-POSTER.pdf] and will be posted shortly on the M-A-D website [www.M-A-D.com].

Eve Sussman’s Cinematic World Without End

Eve Sussman’s Cinematic World Without End | The Multimedial Museum | Scoop.it
Equal parts sci-fi, noir, and formalist structure, Eve Sussman’s new multifaceted film embraces two creative touchstones: the first is the protean symbol of the Russian Cosmodrome, and the second is its namesake, Malevich’s painting White on White.

 

"The computer-generated arrangement is most certainly a source for much of the mystery in the film, but it is not a secret. A monitor on the wall to the left of the screen displays the inner workings of the algorithm dubbed the “Serendipity Machine.” Each clip and voice-over is tagged with a number of identifying words: fog, anxiety, clock, discomfort, reel-to-reel, empty, woman, and apocalypse, as examples. A monitor beside the screen shows a roulette wheel spinning as it chooses a tag, and then spins again to find a match."
