Stand By Your Guns


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 5, 2004
Turbulence Commission: "Stand By Your Guns" by Jillian Mcdonald
http://turbulence.org/Works/mcdonald/

From movies/television and computer/video games to political posturing and gangster rap, weapons have become as "embedded" in our everyday lives as US journalists were in the military during the "major combat" phase of the 2003 Iraq war. "Stand By Your Guns" confronts us with the ubiquity of guns and how violent simulations translate into real life shootings. It is an absurdist piece that both glorifies the weapon and masquerades as an entertainment arcade.

BIOGRAPHY

Do you have something to sell?
Pace Digital Gallery in New York City is curating an online exhibition of work that uses E-Bay, the online auction house, as a conceptual vehicle. We are not interested in artists selling their artwork or their belongings online, but rather in artists who are investigating notions of consumer culture, the market, ephemerality, exchange, intangibility, and things that cannot be for sale. We are interested in work that will be contemporary with the January exhibition but also in archived projects. We will hold an opening and publish a catalogue.
