DISCUSSION

The Rematerialization of Art


I agree that organizing a show around collecting work is a wimpy concept... but I don't see how this is the case.
This is a bunch of good work first. The concept according to Ed is rematerialization. I would just call it a selection of new media works from collections...


DISCUSSION

The Rematerialization of Art


Tom, just wanted to add a few question/comments:

1. What exactly is the problem with organizing a show around collected artwork?
Seems completely natural to me. What is the problem with good artists making
money selling GOOD work? This is the way things are supposed to be…no?

2. New Media (which for now is very much a valid category for the lack of better vocabulary) is starting to sell big time. The interest in work is growing practically every month. Buying new media is buying a right to display and re-sell an immaterial entity (legally an intellectual property). This is becoming a common knowledge amongst the more educated collectors. You buy art the way you buy software. You invest in a conceptual brand. Again, see nothing funny about it.

3. It is the immaterial entity which generates certain physical representation, but those ARE secondary, thus often parts of the edition. A singular piece of new media art is an edition of one. Welcome to the age of info-capital reproductionJ
The re-emergence of objecthood in the new media doesn’t negate the immateriality: it asserts certain well-expected dialectics…

4. Whitney: what can I say, the show is ok, but mostly NOT CONTEMPORARY art. This was the choice made by curators … has nothing to do with appeal of new media to the general public, which I find to be unprecedented.

5. Finally: I can’t see contemporary art without new media. for me they are almost synonymous.

Peace out

"You're Not My Father", Paul Slocum

This joint exhibition is an exploration of a new type of objecthood, which emerged as a product of the information era: the ephemeral-imperfect, forced back into the palpable reality from the domain of codes and numbers. Kevin Bewersdorf and Paul Slocum work toward establishing the contemporary expressive vocabulary, capable of transforming the internet-mediated, generic content into meaningful statements.

"Two videos for the Mitchell Chiropractic Clinic Separated by Eighteen Years", Kevin Bewersdorf

imageAbout Blip:

The Blip Festival is a four-day international cultural event taking place in New York City this November into December, focusing on the 8-bit scene - musicians and artists who use low-bit videogame and computer hardware as their creative tools. The festival is the widest-reaching event in the history of the form, boasting a roster of over 40 international artists performing and exhibiting from places as diverse as Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Argentina, and across the United States.

Manhattan art space The Tank and New York artist collective 8bitpeoples announce the Blip Festival 2007, a four-day music and multimedia event taking place in New York City November 29 - December 2, 2007. Focusing on the modern artistic exploration of primitive video game and home computer technology and featuring 40 musicians and visualists from around the world, the Blip Festival showcases artists adopting and repurposing familiar but forgotten hardware - such as the Commodore 64, the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Atari game console and home computer line, and the Nintendo Game Boy - exploring their untapped potential and unique aesthetic character. The festival's nightly concerts and daytime screenings, workshops, and presentations are supplemented by B I T M A P : as good as new, an adjunct visual art exhibition, held at acclaimed Brooklyn gallery vertexList. The Blip Festival 2007 offers a fascinating cross-section of the chiptune musical aesthetic and related low-bit visual art, in an explosive event taking place at the epicenter of the creative world.

The festival will host evening concerts on all 4 nights. Each night's concert will cost $10 and include 8 musical acts and a variety of live visualists. Tickets will be available online starting in early November and will also be available at the door. Festival passes will also be available for sale in early November.

In addition to concerts there will also be daytime workshops and screenings on Saturday and Sunday. A complete schedule of those events is forthcoming.

Please get excited now.[img][img][/img][/img]
