Friday, Nov 14, 2008 8:30 PM
the New Museum, New York, NY
$6 Members, $8 General Public
BUY TICKETS

Tomorrow evening join us at the New Museum at 8:30pm for a premiere of a new performance by artist Cory Arcangel titled "Continual Partial Awareness."

According to the artist: "This performance is going to be about 'Continuous Partial Awareness' -- a phrase that was first described to me as meaning 'you know, like, when you have three IM windows open, two e-mail in boxes dinging away, are texting five different people, and also have five tabs open on your browser, each with updated content.' It is about paying attention to everything all the time, but not really concentrating on anything. It is different from multitasking, because with multitasking, one actually is expected to concentrate on tasks at some point, even if in small doses. 'Continuous Partial Awareness' is the eroded degenerate modern version of multitasking. I still don't know how this performance will take shape, it might be a lecture, a music show, a broadcast, a chess game, etc., but what I do know is that the feeling of 'non-concentration' that has seeped into today's life through our flat-screen displays and Wi-Fi will be its starting point."

This event is part of Rhizome's ongoing New Silent Series at the New Museum.

Adult Contemporary and Continuous Partial Awareness Trailer by Cory Arcangel

(2)


Cory Arcangel made a trailer (above) for his upcoming solo exhibition at Team Gallery in Manhattan, called "Adult Contemporary," as well as his performance "Continuous Partial Awareness" on November 14th at the New Museum as part of Rhizome's ongoing New Silent Series. For the exhibition, Arcangel will explore the limits of technology from the perspective of a "non-expert" -- instead of seeking out tactics which subvert the intended use of technology, the works in the show will use technology exactly as it was designed, albeit "poorly" and "in an uneducated manner." The performance will touch on the experience of "continuous partial awareness" which the artist describes as an "eroded degenerate modern version of multitasking" explaining, "...you know, like, when you have 3 IM windows open, 2 email inboxs dinging away, are txting 5 different people, and also have 5 tabs open on your browser, each with updated content."

Announcing: Net Aesthetics 2.0 Panel MP3

(1)

For those who were unable to attend the Net Aesthetics 2.0 panel at the New Museum on June 6th (or watch the webcast), we now have an MP3 of the talk available online. Over the past month, the panel has generated active (and heated) discussion on Rhizome's boards, on topics such as net art versioning, the "epic" in net art, surf blogs, and the definition of net art.


Big thanks to Billy Rennekamp for his help with the recording
