BTW, the first 3 episodes of our ongoing work Dark Content will be screened at Whitechapel Gallery during the opening of Electronic Superhighway. It’s a preview of the upcoming Artists’ Film International program, and the proper screening will happen later in the year, but I’m posting this in case you come for the opening. All details here, thanks to GAMeC’s curator Stefano Raimondi for making this happen!

Know Yourself…

“Understand yourself, accept yourself, but don’t be yourself.” Curated by James McAnally “Know Yourself is a ghostwritten group exhibition exploring unstable circulations among authenticity and ownership featuring Conrad Bakker, Chris Bradley, Marianne Laury, Eva and Franco Mattes, Edra Soto, Julia Weist and other uncredited authors presenting borrowed multiples, recontextualized readymades, gouache paintings of empty stages, karaoke overtures and an attempted takeover of an artist’s search results.”

Opening is January 22nd @ The Luminary, St. Louis, Missouri. We’re showing “Internet image search result for ‘exhausted’ printed on various objects by online services”.

Our work The Others currently installed at Abrons Arts Center, for the show ___Families of Objects, curated by Marco Antonini. The projection is always on, and it’s visible from outside the gallery, so if you happen to be walking on the Lower East Side late at night in melancholic mood you’re welcome to stop by for a lonely view.





Mass Effect

Mass Effect: Art and the Internet in the Twenty-First Century, edited by Lauren Cornell and Ed Halter, featuring a lot of really really good texts, highly recommended.





Fukushima’s radioactive wasteland turns into art gallery

The Guardian on Don’t Follow the Wind, again!
This piece is quite different from Jonathan Jones’. Maybe the fact that Justin McCurry actually came to Fukushima, met many people and saw the works, while Jones wrote from his desk without interviewing anyone, makes the difference?





Haaretz on Dark Content

Long article by Neta Alexander on Haaretz about our work Dark Content. Some of our quotes read a bit strange, I guess it’s because of the translation (italo-english to hebrew and back to english…). Hebrew version is here.
Oh, and thanks Natan Dvir for his great photos!
