Join Lindsay Howard and 0-Day Art on April 11th, 7:00pm-8:00pm as they discuss the monetization of net-based art and limiting access to art on the Internet. This talk is the first in a series of conversations to occur in conjunction with the C.R.E.A.M exhibition.
Throughout the month of April, audiences are invited to view C.R.E.A.M., an online-only exhibition organized by Eyebeam's Curatorial Fellow, Lindsay Howard, on Art Micro Patronage. C.R.E.A.M. showcases the work of artists who are politically engaged in open source art and technology while using their creative practice to address issues related to the monetization of net-based work. These pieces subvert existing models, create new ones, and draw inspiration from e-commerce, software piracy, crowdfunding, computer viruses, and various approaches to digital rights management.
0-Day Art is a warez group focused primarily on the acquisition and distribution of net art. It was founded during the summer of 2011 in response to ongoing conversations around the concept of limiting access or imposing restrictions on the display and transfer of digital art works. Warez is a term that refers to unauthorized copies of software with 0-day denoting the spreading of files on the same day that they are made publicly available.
The talk will also be streamed online at http://artmicropatronage.org/talks.
