Please join us for a panel exploring the relationship between the cryptic rhetoric of innovation culture and experimental media art, featuring Morehshin Allahyari, artist, activist, and educator; Melissa Broder, Director of Media and Special Projects, NewHive; and Ceci Moss, Assistant Curator of Visual Arts, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, in conversation with Nicholas O’Brien.

Riffing on the concept of “software as a service”, the panelists will consider the ways in which startups and contemporary business culture has infiltrated and influenced cultural production. As a way of trying to understand the proliferation of terms like “disruption”, “innovation”, and “entrepreneurship” within the arts, this conversation will examine how media art can adopt the language of venture capital and Silicon Valley to build powerful metaphors and poetic gestures.

Wednesday March 18th, 6:30pm PST
