The Art Happens Here
Opens 15 June @ 21h30, Croatian time
Lazareti Art Workshop, Dubrovnik Croatia
Simulcast to Annenberg Island in SL, 12h30 PDT
The Art Happens Here is a contemporary art exhibition and
presentation at the iCommons Summit 2007, resulting from an ongoing
artist in residence programme. Six international artists and a critic
were invited to produce physical and virtual work that engages with
fair use, copyright, re-mixing, piracy and/or collaboration on some
level - whether directly or indirectly.
Works on show will include, but not be limited to, art books, murals,
net.art, sculpture, public performance, video and installation – all
conceptually linked by their engagement with the Commons, by the
artists' time spent in Dubrovnik.
Participants include: Joy Garnett (USA), Ana Husman (Croatia),
Kathryn Smith (South Africa), Nathaniel Stern (USA / South Africa),
Tim Whidden (representing MTAA, USA), Jaka Zeleznikar (Slovenia) and
blog-critic Paddy Johnson (of artfagcity, USA). There will also be a
special appearance in the SL exhibition by Patrick Lichty, aka Man
Artist Discussion Panel on Creative Commons and its potential uses
and effects in professional arts practice will be a part of the
iCommons main programme in Dubrovnik, 15h00 Croatian time.
