Curated by Jillian Mcdonald, the exhibition features four video artists who perform in their own videos using low tech, do-it-yourself methods. All four artists take found media as a starting point - whether Hollywood films, archival interviews, or an audio tape found in a junk shop; humour and a sense of absurd pathos run throughout the work.



Fri Nov 12, 2010 00:00 - Sun Oct 24, 2010

United States of America

The Korn Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition “Zombies” by Jillian Mcdonald. The exhibition will be on view from October 26 through November 23, 2010. Reception Nov 12, 5:30pm - 7:30pm. The Gallery is located in the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts and is open Tuesday through Friday 12:30-4:00 PM and by appointment.

Jillian Mcdonald is exhibiting recent videos and drawings that focus on the canon of American horror film and "fear as entertainment" exemplified in that genre. Unlike contemporary horror film itself, her artwork eschews extreme gore and violence in favor of stripped-down narrative, plot, and archetypes.


Open Call for Networked Art

Mon Nov 01, 2010 00:00

Turbulence.org and Pace Digital Gallery announce an Open Call for Networked Art to be commissioned for the exhibition Turbulence.org @ PaceDigitalGallery 2.

Three commissions @ $3,000 will be awarded. The deadline for proposals is November 1. The works will premiere at Pace Digital Gallery and on Turbulence in April 2011.

The curators are seeking works that address the notion of “Levels | Hierarchies”, as in chains of command, levels of play, stages of life, degrees of comfort... Pace Digital Gallery is, itself, distributed across three floors of a building; within a broad stairwell to be precise. Practitioners are required to address the theme according to both the physical space and the distributed space of the Internet, where the works will permanently reside.

Those of you who live in New York are encouraged to visit the gallery to see the space (gallery hours are Tues - Fri, 12 - 5pm). On view through October 22, David Crawford: Retrospective. Otherwise, here are some images of the space.

Application Requirements

Send an email with the following information:

1. In the subject header: “Turbulence Proposal-your name.”

2. Artist information including full name, residence address, email address, and short bio with links to online projects.

3. A description of the intended project, including:

:: Project Title, Concept (on the theme “Levels | Hierarchies”), Description of how the work will function
:: Why and/or how you consider it to be networked art?
:: Technical specifications: 1. Gallery 2. Server
:: Budget (Note: all costs must be noted, including travel and installation. If the budget exceeds $3,000, practitioners must state that the additional funds have been secured.)

Proposals can be in the form of text in the body of the email, or an attached text file. The assumption is that online examples of work will be sufficient to review. Only emailed proposals will be considered. Email proposals to: turbulence [at] turbulence.org
