Please join us for a Digital Culture Evening on Tuesday, July 30th from 6:30-8pm in the New Museum's Zenith Media Lounge: a conversation between artist Leah Gilliam and curator Mark Tribe on Leah's current project in the
Media Lounge, Agenda for a Landscape, on view through September 22nd.
In Agenda for a Landscape the gallery becomes an abandoned NASA command center showcasing computer manipulated footage of Mars, obtained by the Sojourner Rover (Remotely Operated Vehicular Robot) in NASA's 1997 Mars Pathfinder mission, combined with Gilliam's own video work and other found imagery. By creating an entirely new Martian landscape, Gilliam raises questions about telerobotic technology and the authenticity of information that is disseminated over time and space.
This Digital Culture Evening conversation is free and open to the public.
The New Museum is located at 583 Broadway, between Houston and Prince Streets in New York City. For more information, please call 212.219.1222 or check www.newmuseum.org.
