The Art Happens Here

Opens 15 June @ 21h30, Croatian time
Lazareti Art Workshop, Dubrovnik Croatia

Simulcast to Annenberg Island in SL, 12h30 PDT
Second Life

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
Michinaga (USA).

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.
