Urbanisms exhibition Apr - June, reception May 3

Tue May 03, 2005 00:00 - Thu Apr 14, 2005

Pace Digital Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition curated by Annette Weintraub.

Pace Digital Gallery
163 William St, NYC
Tu - Fr, 10 - 6

artists: David Crawford • Sylvain Hourany • Ruy Klein Architecture + Paul Myoda • Stanza • Marek Walczek + Martin Wattenberg

Urbanisms is a selection of projects that remap and revisualize the city through the processing and reinterpretation of diverse streams of information: sound, captured visual images and texts. The projects in this exhibition reflect the dynamic diversities of urban patterning and permit us to perceive the city in different ways: through surprising juxtapositions of sounds, in the minute physical gestures of its inhabitants, in a changing collision of passers-by and their environment, in the accumulations of data flowing from online to physical space, and in the mechanisms of surveillance and control that provide a constant stream of visuals as byproduct.

Urbanisms offers an expanded vision of urbanism—or more precisely, a multiplicity of urbanisms—that is global, dynamic and mutating and present a spectacle of ever-shifting patterns of visual, aural and cultural information to be processed, manipulated and reconstituted anew.

exhibition April 12-June 10, 2005
reception Tuesday, May 3, 2005, 6-8 pm
