Hypersalon @ MAM, Dec 17 + 19

15 December 2015

The Hypersalon™, conference returns for its second iteration in Paris, running at the Musée d’Art Moderne on December 17 and December 19.

The event, organised by Philippe Riss of XPO Gallery and Mathieu Merlet-Briand, explores the implications of networked culture and runs in conjunction with the Musée d’Art Moderne’s current Co-Workers exhibition.

The conference brings Gregory Chatonsky with ‘Deep Dream: Does the network dream of humans?’ (which takes the 2015 Google release of fantastical images of fish and dogs as its starting point for the exploration of network memory and our “hallucinatory vision of the human world”) on December 17 and a conversation with Christiane Paul and Clément Valla called ‘New Materialities of Digital Art’ on December 19.

JODI @ Whitney Museum, Mar 5 –

5 March 2014

Net art duo Joan Heemskerk and Dirk Paesmans of JODI, present ‘goodmorning goodnight’ at New York’s Whitney Museum, March 5.

As part of new media curator Christiane Paul‘s SUNRISE/SUNSET series, they explore the visual and textual representations of the daily cycle in the online environment, to mark the opening and closing of the day in New York.

The pair use location-specific images of sunsets and sunrises from areas surrounding the museum, culled from photo sharing website Panoramio and following the path of the sun as it sets and rises, thereby collapsing “user-generated and media representations of time and space into a single view of Manhattan seen through a browser window”.

See the Whitney Museum website for details. **

‘Shared Spaces’ symposium @ Whitney Museum, Jan 14

10 January 2014

New York’s Whitney Museum will be holding a two-part symposium, Shared Spaces: Social Media and Museum Structures, on January 14.

A “site-specific network” exploring “the transformation of the museum in the age of social media”, the event will look at the digital devices, corporate platforms and historical shifts affecting the mediation, experience and attitudes towards art in the gallery setting through a series of long-form panels and micro-lectures moderated by digital art scholar Christiane Paul. Other scholars, curators and artists to take part include Ed Shanken, New Museum curator Lauren Cornell, Mendi and Keith Obadike and The Jogging co-founder Brad Troemel, among others. Because in an era where André Malraux’s “museum without walls” has been realised, where exactly do those that still have them stand?
