Lunch Bytes is launching its first publication, titled No Internet, No Art, at Toronto’s Art Metropole with a conversation between Lunch Bytes curator and founder Melanie Bühler and Director of Creative Development Version House in Berlin, Alex Turgeon, on September 9.
The Toronto launch comes on the heels of the Washington launch on September 2 and the NYC launch on September 3, and will be followed by another one at San Serriffe in Amsterdam on October 1. Edited and introduced by Bühler, published by Onomatopee, and designed by Hannes Gloor, the anthology comes out of the series of public events entitled Lunch Bytes – Thinking about Art and Digital Culture, held in Washington, D.C.
Amongst more than 40 contributing artists, the anthology includes the familiar names of Paul Kneale, Kari Altmann, Karen Archey, Aram Bartholl, Harry Burke, Adam Cruces, Jaakko Pallasvuo, Jon Rafman, Jenna Sutela and Elvia Wilk—all working to explore what the prevalence of the internet means for contemporary art.
