Beginning this past weekend a leading group of art bloggers, internet artists, online curators and critics began taking up residence at Capricious Space in Williamsburg for “In Real Life,” an exhibition showcasing some of the artosphere’s leading lights through revolving 4-hour residencies at the gallery. Laurel Ptak of iheartphotograph curated the show. “‘In Real Life’ explores how the distribution, production, analysis, and consumption of culture are rapidly evolving in an online context,” writes Ptak in the exhibition statement. “In particular the exhibition aims to render the labor of these online practices transparent, providing ‘real life’ access to these cultural producers, and overall inspiring public dialogue around their practices.” Residents include Rhizome, Art Fag City, ASDF, Club Internet, Ffffound, The Highlights, Humble Arts Foundation, iheartphotograph, Loshadka, Netmares/Netdreams, Platform For Pedagogy, Private Circulation, UbuWeb, VVORK, and Why + Wherefore.
“In Real Life,” curated by Laurel Ptak. Capricious Space, New York, NY. Through March 28.
