Creative Time Summit, Aug 11-13

11 August 2015

The 7th and most extensive Creative Time Summit launches today in Venice with three full days of panel discussions, presentations, keynote addresses, artist projects, and events throughout August 11, 12 and 13.

Curated by Creative Time‘s Chief Curator, Nato Thompson, a selection of artists attending the New York non-profit’s annual art and politics platform will share their work and practices, and audience members outside of Venice will be able to contribute to the discourse through Livestream screening sites around the globe, providing continuous opportunities for debate.

The three-day programme includes performances and interventions by Pedro Lasch, Marinella Senatore, Nástio Mosquito, and Ahmet Ögüt with Fino Blendax, keynotes by Amy Goodman, artist Mariam Ghani in conversation with the president of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani, and Achille Mbembe, a presentation by Teju Cole for “The Geography of Learning”, and a statement by Joshua Wong representing the Hong Kong activist group, Scholarism.

Taking place at the Cymru yn Fenis Wales in Venice collateral exhibition venue will be the Press Room special project, which as part of the Summit’s theme of “The Curriculum” invites a number of guest editors to present conceptual briefings.

Viaje Astral

6 March 2012

I must have some kind of epileptic-phobia or a lack-of-epilepsy-complex because I always end up posting pretty much any video, film or clip which has some level of flashy multi-colored elements in it. If Neon Indian doesn’t release his monthly flashy clip… someone else will!

And who do we have this month? A bunch of Italian kings! From Rome… RedBull Music Academy participant Beniamino Petroselli (aka Venice) together with the “freshly born” Dumbo gets mad who dropped their even more psychedelic debut LP just over a year ago.

Intriguing to see what sort of “rocky trippy” experience these 6 have prepared for us and verify what we all have come to realise lately… that Italians do it (in fact) better. “Viaje Astral” can be streamed (and bought) on their collaborative bandcamp page.
