And/Or reception/artist talk Saturday!!!


And/Or Gallery Show #5:

Nick Ackerman + Michael Bell-Smith

Our reception is this Saturday, Sept 23rd, 6pm-9pm.

And we’ll be having artist talks at 6pm with Michael Bell-Smith and also Dirk Paesmans of the influential deconstructive Internet/video game art collective, JODI!!

JODI is a pioneer of Internet art who created net-art that questioned the nature of the Internet and browser before most people were familiar the Internet. More recently they have been working with hacks, exploits, and glitches in modern first-person-shooter video games. This is a preview of a talk that Dirk will be giving in a few weeks at the MOMA, so don’t miss it.

Michael Bell-Smith is a New York-based video artist who appropriates or emulates video and images from video games and television, tears them apart, and reconstructs them into seamless video loops that are isolated from the original content. Read his recent review in the New York Times.
