A 10-year Retrospective of Programming, Eyebeam Style
Since 1997, artists, programmers, hackers, activists, technologists, kids and adults have come to Eyebeam to share ideas, find collaborators, experiment with new tools and create new work. The projects in Source Code – the first of three exhibitions presenting the very best of creative exploration at Eyebeam – frame technologies, generate new processes and offer the audience a platform to contemplate the impact of technology on everyday life.
This exhibition marks the organization’s unique role in supporting artists experimenting with or critically examining the impact of new technologies in cultural production. The institution’s multiple channels of support include artist residencies, yearlong fellowships and commissions.
State of Emergency was the inaugural exhibition of the Window Gallery, Eyebeam's new rotating gallery space programmed by Eyebeam fellows and residents and viewable on West 21st Street. A deliberately provocative projection series organized and co-curated by Sherry Millner and Ernest Larsen, State of Emergency included work by Eyebeam senior fellow Michael Mandiberg, Mary Kelly, Allan Sekula, Walid Raad, Leslie Thornton, Gregory Sholette, Louis Hock, Marty Lucas, Sally Stein, Martha Rosler, Ligorano/Reese, Yvonne Rainer, James T. Hong, and Yin-Ju Chen, as well as Millner and Larsen themselves.
Eyebeam announces its long-anticipated 2007 exhibition season and commences its 10th Anniversary year with Open City – a glimpse into the current media and tactics of artists who take their practices into the street. Be it through projection, writing on walls or robotic pamphleteering, Open City presents the work of artists who communicate through the surfaces and structures of our communal spaces and offers a deeper look at the means and motivations of urban action and creativity. Join participating artists for the Opening Reception March 1, 6-8pm to launch this series of screenings, presentations and workshops exploring tool building, tactics, techniques and approaches to communication by any means necessary within the urban context.
