Upgrade! NY continues its series on open source as it relates to activism and creative practice with a conversation between Larisa Mann and Karl Fogel followed by a DJ set by Larisa Mann (aka DJ Ripley). The discussion will examine how Jamaican music has developed in the absence of an effective copyright regime, how technological and social conditions affect the music and musicians, and then will compare this to the open source movement today. They’ll look at how changes in technology and social convention affect music, software, and culture in general.

Please join Not An Alternative, Eyebeam Art & Technology Center, and Upgrade! NY, this Thursday, June 10 for the opening of Re:Group: Beyond Models of Consensus, an exhibition which examines models of participation and participation as a model in art and activism.

 

INTRO TO TWO STATEMENTS:

Re:Group: Beyond Models of Consensus proposes that with participation now a dominant paradigm, structuring social interaction, art, activism, the architecture of the city, the internet, and the economy, we are all integrated into participatory structures whether we want to be or not. The exhibition showcases work that subverts existing systems or envisions new alternatives to the ways in which individuals can take part, or choose not to take part, in social and cultural life.

Maria del Carmen Montoya is a new media artist who works in sculpture, performance, and video. Her work explores the personal, emotional and utterly irrational tendencies of technology.  Her collaborative projects include WineBloodBloodLove, a performance and sound installation inside the Herman Nitsch retrospective at the Station Museum in Houston, TX and the creation of The Digital Poplar Consort, a family of handcrafted wireless musical instruments with which is used in a concert performance.  Her most recent work I Sky You, winner of a 2009 Rhizome Commission, is an installation that sonifies the radiance of chemically synthesized light. It is inspired by the phrase Frida Kahlo used to describe infinite love: “I Sky You.”
