It’s not unfortunate there is no internet at this event. All the works will be uploaded onto the hardware that will be setting before you. In some cases, the artist’s personal laptop will be on view. You will be standing and viewing a “vvork” like the artist saw as he made it, or found it etc whatever. This exhibition aggressively addresses issues of “immateriality” and “free art” in the context they’ve been discussed on rhizome, the jogging, tom moody etc whatever.
Unlike the internet, this exhibition—social is free.
Crates & Laptops is an exhibition-social presenting screen-based works, installations and performance by Chris Collins, Arend deGruyter-Helfer, Louis Doulas, Bea Fremderman, Brian Khek, Jason Lazarus, Evan and Andre Lenox, Duncan Malashock, Nicholas O’Brien, Nik Pence, Tabor Robak, Micah Schippa, Brad Troemel and Sarah Weis.
Each artist is bringing or borrowing a laptop to show their own work. All laptops are placed on milk crates for viewing and interaction.
