Live Stage: Chris Cuellar [us Chicago]

Upgrade! Chicago: Chris Cuellar :: October 4, 2011; 7:00 pm :: The Nightingale 1084 N. Milwaukee, Chicago, IL.

Chris Cuellar will be presenting on a series he recently organized for the Art21 blog where he transformed the guest column into a practical art-making resource as well as a vehicle for the un-distribution of existing works. He asked a small group of artists to give away their secrets in the form of online tutorials. Each how-to is meant to give the reader enough information to accurately reproduce the project presented. Furthermore, in order to reduce issues of artistic ownership, each artist’s contribution has been more or less ‘anonymized’ before posting, with as many overt references to the the individual artist or original project removed as possible.

Live Stage: Anne Laforet [fr Paris]

Upgrade! Paris: Anne Laforet — on the occasion of the publication of Le netart au musée – Stratégies de conservation des œuvres en ligne (Questions Théoriques) :: June 5, 2011; 6:00 pm :: Les Douches, 5 rue Legouvré, 75010 Paris.

With some museums acquiring net art works in the recent years, issues of preservation and exhibition have arisen. On the one hand, the digital materials of these works are fragile and continually on the verge of obsolescence. On the other hand, these works have to be online and activated by their audience to be full works of art. Preservation is both related to the material dimension of the artwork but also is a dialog with the artist and the museum. Continue reading

Technocratic management of public spaces considers the body as an object that interferes with flow regulation. Citizens are patronized, attacked by these anti-ergonomic devices. Space is degrading / degraded. Today, public space ceases to be a shared space. It embodies the violence of powers. — Gilles Paté
