All In One

Eyebeam Atelier in New York City is many things: an educational institution, production house, funding organization, and research and development center. It also boasts a massive exhibition space in a prime Chelsea location that has in recent years often been under-utilized for new-media art exhibitions. Under the new leadership of Executive Director Amanda McDonald Crowley, however, this seems to be changing. Interference is the second in a series of three exhibitions that celebrate the tenth year of the organization. Looking at the intersecting and contested boundaries between public and private space, 'Interference' highlights the work of past Eyebeam artists, residents, and fellows. Original artwork that assesses the conflicted roles of the New York policemen, CIA surveillance networks, and local community gardens, are shown beside documentation from neuroTransmitter's latest FM Ferry Experiment, and recent output of the prolific R&D lab. But as Eyebeam has always illustrated, exhibition alone may not be enough. Playing on their strength as a multi-use space, the show is enhanced by multiple workshops and public programs for a multitude of audiences. 'Interference' will be open through November 10th, 2007.
