OPENING RECEPTION ::: 'New Sculpt' a solo exhibition from LaTurbo Avedon


Dates:
Sat Jul 20, 2013 19:00 - Sat Aug 10, 2013

Location:
Brooklyn, New York
United States of America

TRANSFER Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition from LaTurbo Avedon from July 20th through August 10th

::: Opening Reception ::: SATURDAY July 20th ::: 7-11PM :::

LaTurbo Avedon's exhibition at TRANSFER gallery is the artist's first solo show, and also her first foray into exhibiting in offline space. The exhibition features Avedon's 'New Sculpt' series – a body of work that has been growing online for months – which consists of dramatically detailed polygonal 3D sculpture.

For this show, the artist-render has rendered new large format prints and video of her sculptural work, which will be accompanied by virtual performance the night of the opening.

/////////////////////////////////////////////

An essay from Daniel Rourke will be released in tandem with the exhibition.

Excerpt :::

"In the past three decades the term ‘cyberspace’ has come to define a social, rather than a geometric common environment. The term still conjures up images of posthuman projections and vast parallax branes, their cross-hatched surfaces woven at right angles by virtual motorcycles. We hear ‘cyberspace’ and we think of terminals, of cables and an ocean of information, yet the most important means by which cyberspace is produced – namely human social and economic relations – barely registers a flicker. The objects of New Sculpt play between these contradictions."

::: Full text will be available in the gallery and released online after the opening of the exhibition.

'En Plein Air' a solo exhibition from Rick Silva


Dates:
Sat May 18, 2013 12:20 - Sat Jun 08, 2013

Location:
Brooklyn, New York
United States of America

‘En Plein Air’ a solo exhibition by Rick Silva will be presented at TRANSFER Gallery from May 18th through June 8th

::: Opening Reception ::: May 18th from 7-11PM :::

Rick Silva's 'En Plein Air' series [http://enpleinair.org/] is an ongoing body of work that has been growing online since January of 2012. The images in this series are created at the locations they depict — an encounter between digital gestures and the unbuilt environment.

|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\|\

From Nicholas O'Brien ::: net-based artist, curator, and writer :::
Rick Silva’s work takes the historical precedent of Plein Air painting as a point of departure to explore the possibility of the sublime within digital contexts. Through replacing the canvas and easel with software and a computer, Silva delicately repositions digital technology out in the wilderness in a gesture that is once familiar and foreign. When amassed together, his ongoing series ‘En Plein Air’ positions Silva’s work as a standout collection of meditative clearings from the ever-wild kudzu of media art.

A digital publication from Nicholas O’Brien will accompany ‘En Plein Air’ at Transfer Gallery.

>get >put – an exhibition of downloaders and uploaders


Dates:

Location:
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Uploading and downloading are ubiquitous behaviors in our day-to-day, and so the virtual invades the real, data sets mesh, personalities blur, and aesthetics run rampant. With a book from The Institute of Social Hypocrisy as provocateur, six artists put “The Sound of Downloading Makes me want to Upload” into form. The work takes shape as digital compositions anchored in spatiotemporal objects, developed through IRL + online practice for this exhibition.

Digital catalog, online programming and downloadables available throughout the month of November http://get-put.net, Curated by Kelani Nichole

Performance @9PM | gridworks6000 by a bill miller

grdwrks6000 is a live audio/video performance piece developed by a. bill miller. The video incorporates a realtime video feed from a camera pointed at the projection field. This input is processed through a feedback loop and as ASCII art. In performance, the artist controls audio samples that coincide with changes in the visual characteristics.

As the piece is performed, elements of improvisation and interactivity are introduced to the unique and transitory elements into the mix between analog presentation of digital environments. The work has been performed in a range of live venues in Chicago, St. Paul, and Milwaukee. It was presented with an interactive component during BYOB Philly at the Little Berlin Gallery.

Discussion + Closing Reception for 'Distributed Collectives'


Dates:
Sat Aug 27, 2011 18:30 - Sat Aug 27, 2011

Location:
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
United States of America

Join us for the closing reception of Distributed Collectives, a show of artwork from the internet.

Manya Scheps will moderate a live, online discussion concentrating on the theoretical implications of both the little berlin exhibition and net  art in general. The chat will be projected on one of the gallery's walls as the conversation unfolds. It will occur during the closing reception for the exhibition, and will serve as an ambient framing of the pieces in the show before they are powered down. This discussion serves both as an extension of the exhibition as well as an integration of it, informally and literally connecting the featured artists with each other and their medium.

An essay produced for Distributed Collectives by Manya Scheps titled 'Net Art: Black Sun, White Halloween' is available in the digital catalog.

If you are intersted in participating in the discussion remotely, please write to berlin.little@gmail.com for connection information.
