Joy Garnett is a painter based in New York. She appropriates news images from the Internet and re-invents them as paintings. Her subject is the apocalyptic-sublime landscape, as well as the digital image itself as cultural artifact in an increasingly technologized world. Her image research has resulted in online documentation projects, most notably The Bomb Project.

Notable past exhibitions include her recent solo shows at Winkleman Gallery, New York and at the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC; group exhibitions organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, P.S.1/MoMA Contemporary Art Center, Artists Space, White Columns (New York), Kettle's Yard, Cambridge (UK), and De Witte Zaal, Ghent (Belgium).

"Dangling Between The Real Thing And The Sign In The Window"
Dam, Stuhltrager Gallery
Williamsburg / Greenpoint
38 Marcy Avenue

October 13 - November 13, 2006
OPENING: Friday, October 13, 7 - 9pm

For as long as I remember, I've dangled between the real thing and the sign
in the window. Or, more precisely, that mammoth sign in that mammoth window
with the legend written, 'The big time!'
-- excerpt from a 1973 address by Morton Feldman

The art world of today appears to be dangling between the real thing and the
superficial. Barry Hoggard and James Wagner, the curators of this show, have
invited a small diverse group of artists whose work is about what they think
and feel, and whose artistic vision is not bent toward what they think the
market wants this month or this year.

Artists: Jaishri Abichandani, Ina Diane Archer, Peter Corrie, Susan C.
Dessel , Nicolas Garait, Joy Garnett, Jacques Louis Vidal.

Thanks to everyone who came out to our meeting with Jamie Boyle on
Wednesday. He really enjoyed our group and loved all of the questions and
participation. More speakers and talks are in the works (with bigger rooms
and more food), so keep an eye an out...

I figured I'd post some Free Culture type events in NYC happening this week
that you might consider going to.

First, there's Lawrence Lessig and Chris Anderson at the NYPL on Thursday
night. Buy your tickets now, Lessig's talks usually sell out.. Check out to buy tickets and more
info. Chris Anderson just released his book "The Long Tail" about how the
Internet caters to the 80% of the market that Walmart and Virgin don't care
about. It should be a great talk.. I'll be there.

Friday at Irving Plaza, Creative Commons is hosting their New York
fundraiser event. Diplo, Girl Talk and Peeping Tom (Mike Patton's newest
thing). Tickets are $25 and the event is part of Wired's NextFest. Check out
more info here :
I'll be manning the CC booth from 8-9pm, so make sure to drop by and say hi
if you come.

On to some Free Culture @ NYU news..

We're very lucky to be hosting the first of many international DRM protests
at the Apple Store Midtown on Saturday at 3pm. We're going to be handing out
flyers, and educating consumers about the evils of DRM, and more
specifically -- the DRM in Apple's iTunes store. I'm also working on getting
about 20 yellow and bright green Hazmat suits for us to wear (because, as
you know, DRM is dangerous) from the guys. FYI: There
should be a lot of media there..

And on one final note: We're going to be meeting tomorrow night at 8pm to
discuss these plans and work on the flyer for Saturday as well as talk about
copyright. Please come if you're interested in any of these topics -- we
love our new members.
