Join us Friday, November 15 at 5pm at New Inc. for a happy-hour celebration and conversation in honor of the release of Ceci Moss’ first full length book, Expanded Internet Art. Moss, a curator, writer, and educator based in Los Angeles, previously served as Senior Editor of rhizome.org. She also contributed to The Art Happens Here: Net Art Anthology.
From the publisher:
Expanded Internet Art is the first comprehensive art historical study of “expanded” internet art practices.
Charting the rise of a multidisciplinary approach to online artistic practice in the past decade, the text discusses recent currents in contemporary artistic practice that parallel the explosion of the internet through advances such as social media, smart phones, and faster bandwidth. Internet art is no longer determined solely by its existence on the web; rather, contemporary artists are making more art about informational culture using various methods of both online and offline means. It asks how artists, such as Seth Price, Harm van den Dorpel, Kari Altmann, Artie Vierkant and Oliver Laric, create a critical language in response to the persuasive influence of informational capture on culture and expression, where the environment itself becomes reorganized to be more legible as information.
Seating is limited. Please RSVP to reserve your place.
Expanded Internet Art is available for purchase online and at the event.
