Please join Eyebeam at the closing event for the last exhibition on view in our Chelsea space. The exhibition, The New Romantics, co-curated by Claudia Hart, Nicholas O’Brien, and Katie Torn has already been noted and celebrated in publications like Artnet, Blouin Artinfo, The Gallerist, SFAQ, and Hyperallergic as a highlight of this season. For the closing event, Eyebeam is celebrating the release of an [s]Edition collection (http://www.seditionart.com/eyebeam) featuring new or unreleased works by artists in the exhibition as well as initiating pre-orders for an upcoming catalog published by Intellect.

The collection will feature digital editions of works by Tim Berresheim, Ryan Whittier Hale, Claudia Hart, Sophie Kahn, Sara Ludy, Shane Mecklenburger, Jonathan Monaghan, MSHR (Brenna Murphy and Birch Cooper) and Katie Torn. The diversity of renderings, images, animations, and simulations for sale through [s]Edition compliment works already on view in the gallery and extend the conversation invoked in this exhibition to audiences far beyond Chelsea.

Likewise, the publication will also continue the dialog initiated in the gallery with contributing essays by Jacob Gaboury, Alex M. Lee, Ceci Moss, Jon Rafman, as well as contributions by many of the participating artists in the exhibition. Guests attending the opening will not only have a chance to pre-order but also will have an opportunity to get a glimpse at what to expect when their copy arrives.

Although the event serves to feature these two amazing continuations of the exhibition, it will also be a fantastic send off for Eyebeam as they begin their move to Brooklyn to re-open in the Brooklyn Cultural District in 2016. To help celebrate, DV-i will be providing musical entertainment through the evening.

Eyebeam is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2014/2015 Eyebeam Fellowships. For the first time, Eyebeam is making the Fellowships a two year-commitment to enable recipients to develop in-depth projects in collaboration with Brooklyn community groups. Beginning this July, Eyebeam is awarding annual stipends totaling $60,000 (renewable in the second year), as well as 24/7 access to Eyebeam's design, digital research, and fabrication studios, to artists working in the areas of citizen infrastructure, collaborative installations and future modeling. 

Eyebeam is thrilled to welcome incoming fellows Nancy Nowacek and Torkwase Dyson. Additionally, Not An Alternative (collective) will join as Honorary Fellows. 

Fellows are selected from a yearly open call for applicants from artists, creative technologists, designers, curators, urbanists, architects, and policy thinkers. 

To learn more about the work planned by the incoming fellows, please download the press release

 Torkwase Dyson received her MFA from Yale University in painting/printmaking. An interdisciplinary artist, her work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of Art, the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education, and the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art. Her work has been supported by Brooklyn Arts Council Community Arts Fund, Culture Push Fellowship for Utopian Practices, The Green Festival of New York, Obsidian Arts and Public funds of the City of Minneapolis, Mural Arts Program of Philadelphia, and Dorchester Projects in Chicago. Torkwase is based in Brooklyn, NY.

Investigating relationships between labor and leisure, and the built and the natural environment, Nancy Nowacek actively engages with the world around her.

She makes task-based encounters between people, spaces, and things. Research-based, her practice is shaped by observation of, dissatisfaction with, and great optimism for the world around her. Her work examines the relationship between late capital post-industrial time sense and body sense, where physical anatomy has been surpassed by man-made machines as useful—or valuable—technology.

Expanding beyond exercise to the grammars of functional movement, architecture, engineering and labor systems, she makes sculpture, performance, and drawings that collapse thinking into doing; and to reinstate the body’s relevance: as functioning object, tool, channel for experience and site of imagination. 

She is currently a resident of the Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation and is a Smackmellon Arts ‘One to Watch’. Previously she has been a Culture Push Fellow, and an Lower Manhattan Cultural Council residency recipient. She has shown in New York, Los Angeles, the Bay Area, Canada, and Europe. Her commissioned projects have featured in the San Jose Art & Technology 2006, 2010, and 2012 Biennials. She has an MFA in Visual Communication from Virginia Commonwealth University, an MFA in Social Practice from California College of Art and she is certified in Personal Fitness from the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

This is a series of conversations between Eyebeam residents and fellows exploring how art and new tools can interrogate one another but also converge in creative exploration. 

The second talk in this series features Eyebeam alumni Heather Dewey-Hagborg and Chris Woebken, discussing speculative futures. The talk will explore surveillance culture and art as a form of social critique. Inquiry areas will include the public revelations of Snowden, the current electronic surveillance state, $1000 genome sequencing, DIYbio, genetic privacy, collectively envisioning futures and debating the value of speculative practice. 

Other Talks in this Series: 

Tuesday, May 20: Eyebeam Residents James Bridle and Ingrid Burrington

Tuesday, June 3: Eyebeam Alumna Laurel Ptak + McKenzie Wark

Unsanctioned posters are the wallpaper of New York’s surfaces, announcing political messages, fashion lines, multi-colored mobile phones, and hip hop albums.  Come envision the imagery that might adorn New York City’s future streets at the Wild Posting Futures BBQ.  Work with custom futuring tools and thought diagrams to imagine diverse future messages of businesses, services, artists or propagandists.  

Bring your laptop and some weenies; we’ll supply graphic design consultation, a large format printer, the BBQ, and the futuring method.

Install and exhibit your work at Eyebeam's Storefront.  Exhibition will run from May 24 - June 1.

Take home a wheatpasting kit and your original print.

ABOUT THE PROJECT:

The Extrapolation Factory, co-founded by Chris Woebken and Elliott P. Montgomery, is an imagination-based studio for design-lead futures studies.  The studio focuses on developing future scenarios, embodied as artifacts in familiar, present-day contexts.  The Extrapolation Factory proposes methods for collaboratively envisioning possible futures with diverse participants, experts and non-experts, and doing so in a variety of accessible ways.  With this work, the Extrapolation Factory is exploring the value of rapidly imagined, prototyped, deployed and evaluated visions of possible futures on an extended time scale.  The Extrapolation Factory has worked with partners and organizations such as Autodesk Research, TED, UNICEF, Ontario College of Art and Design University, Storefront for Art and Architecture, Columbia University’s Studio-X NYC, and Forum for the Future.  The Core77 Design Award was granted to The Extrapolation Factory in 2013’s Speculative Design category.
