Creative Pursuits & Master Class in Reverse



I gotta show I've titled "Creative Pursuits" opening up this Saturday, January 16, @ 6pm at the University of Michigan Art Museum . Im showing a bunch of new things,....some new Photoshop prints, op11, new & old game mods, ..... and last but not least I'll be showing the first 'sculpture' I ever made (which is "kinetic" by the way). U can see kinda what its all about from the "trailer" above.....except in Germany where apparently Billy Joel doesn't allow his music to be played on utube... ALso, there will be a performance the night of the opening in collaboration with the University of Michigan Digital Music Ensemble called Master Class in Reverse (in the Helmut Stern Auditorium, Free and open to the public). Seating is limited. Here is the blurb from UMMA:

Come experience this collaborative, improvisational performance between Brooklyn-based artist and musician Cory Arcangel and the University of Michigan Digital Music Ensemble. Marking the opening of Arcangel's solo exhibition at UMMA, this program will involve Arcangel and the audience experiencing and experimenting with a number of interactive, sound-producing objects created and displayed by the Digital Music Ensemble. The performance will be completely unscripted and the 'instruments' will remain a mystery to Arcangel and the public at large until the show begins.

note: So basically its a totally improv'd perfomance with a bunch of instruments I have never seen before. There is a high probabilty it will be a total disaster (but that's kinda the idea). I am looking forward to it

To Recap:

University of Mighican Museum of Art: Helmut Stern Auditorium
MASTER CLASS IN REVERSE
a NEW premiere performance... Jan 16th @ 8 PM
University of Mighican Museum of Art

University of Mighican Museum of Art: Project Gallery

ps - Also there is an "artist walkthrough" of the show at 130pm on Sunday.........
pps - I just realized it's the University of Michigan Museum of Art, and not the University of Michigan Art Museum, so please note that wherever I've screwed it up.....

Digital Folklore



Internet experts DRX and OLIA, have released a new book(!!!!), The Digital Folklore Reader. UPDATE: I'm such a moron that when I posted this yesterday, I forgot the link. One more time, its HERE.

The book features works and texts by me, Julia Boger, Manuel Buerger, Helene Dams, Dragan Espenschied, Jorg Frohnmayer, Mark Grimm, Christopher Heller, Yunchul Kim, Dennis Knopf, Stefan Krappitz, Florian Kroner, Tobias Leingruber, Olia Lialina, Leo Merz, Bernadette Neuroth, o+ro, johannes p osterhoff, Isabel Pettinato, Michael Rub, Theo Seemann, Alexander Schlegel, Bert Schutzbach, and Siegfried Zielinsky.

Here is a bit of text from the book:

Users' endeavors, like glittering star backgrounds, photos of cute kittens and rainbow gradients, are mostly derided as kitsch or in the most extreme cases, postulated as the end of culture itself. In fact this evolving vernacular, created by users for users, is the most important, beautiful and misunderstood language of new media.

Basically, if you r a geocities, or ASCII art, or BLINK, or marquee freak, this book is 4 u. The Internet is a wonderful place, and DRX and OLIA have tried to articulate this in the most archival form known to man .....the book. So in 2000 years people will still be able to read about the things that were once in the land called Anglefire. Christmas tree's all across the world need this!!!!!.

Lisson Presents 7 & op11 in Salzburg




So, if your in London please stop by the Lisson Gallery. I have done a thing there called "Lisson Presents" which is a series they have where they invite people to rummage through their archives and show what ever catches their eye. Since Lisson at one time or another has shown a ton of my all time fav artists, this was pretty fun. Works by Stephen Willats (a work from the 60's as well as a new commission!!!!!), John Armleder, Ceal Foyer, Daniel Buren, Art and Language, & Rodney and Dan Graham.....ps - a few of my things will be on show as well. UPDATE picts here. Also, note from the 27th on, my video, Drei Klavierstucke op. 11 is gonna be on show in Salzburg at Ropac gallery. Of course you can watch it here, but Austria is an equally appropriate place as well. I would encourage both! More info here.

Continuous Partial Awareness Video




So, Rhizome has posted a video of my performance I did @ the New Museum last fall (above). It's kinda funny, though since its an hour long (....way to long in Internet land) the PDF version of the performance is here. Also, for whatever reason if you are the type of person who prefers bootlegs, see 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5.
