The Moving Museum Anthologies | Technostalgia Launch Event

The Moving Museum kicks off 2017 with the launch of a new platform of web-based anthologies. Technostalgia, the inaugural anthology edited by Coline Milliard, will go live on 22 March 2017 and explore the aesthetics of early technologies, their legacy and impact, as well as their fetishization and appropriation in a contemporary artistic context. Participating artists include Cory Arcangel, Constant Dullaart, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Peter Luining, Lorna Mills, Paper Rad, Mark Richards, Gustavo Romano, Evan Roth, Paul Slocum, Thomson & Craighead, and Ubermorgen. The Moving Museum Anthologies is a new online publishing platform that re-imagines how a contemporary art organization shares ideas online. TMM Anthologies gives cultural practitioners the opportunity to curate and share important ideas to an online audience using Internet native media. Curators, artists, writers and technologists will be invited to discuss urgent topics, contextualize artistic discourse, and share original concepts through any format imaginable on a platform made specifically for creative material beyond the written word. This unique resource will be accompanied by a series of talks, performances, and workshops held in major cities and streamed live online. The Moving Museum will be launching the platform as well as its first series of anthologies with catalytic support from the Arts Council England for the development and production of this program. To mark the opening of the programme and the Technostalgia Anthology launch, The Moving Museum will host apanel discussion at Carroll / Fletcher in London on 23 March 2017. Moderated by Coline Milliard, the panel will include artist Alison Craighead from British artist duo Thomson and Craighead, and Professor Beryl Graham, Professor of New Media Art at University of Sunderland, and co-founder and editor of CRUMB.

    Joseph Kendra: If You Had a Year to Change Something What Would You Do?

    The BMW Tate Live Thought Workshop Series 2013-14 was a project that explored the possibilities of change and transformation, through ideas about art, thought and technology. Organised in partnership with theatre company Quarantine, the project asked people to answer a simple question: If you had a year to change something, what would you do? A group of 30 recruited participants met across a series of events between 2013-2014, with invited guests from a wide range of disciplines. The ‘Thought Workshop Series’ acted as a case study for Tate Exchange, a new space at Tate Modern for the public to collaborate, test ideas and discover new perspectives on life, through art. This talk explores how long-term collaborations between institutions, artists and the public might transform the way we think about current artistic practice, learning and the role of the museum.

    QUAD Arts centre | PaintingDigitalPhotography conference

    The PaintingDigitalPhotography conference seeks to investigate how artists and theorists are currently engaged in critical discourses around the shifting relationships of painting, photography, and digital manipulation. How are these mediums being defined in their connection to one another as new hybrid forms are being created through their combination? What do these combinations tell us about these mediums and disciplines, their natures and practices, in the digital age? In what ways might digital imaging and manipulation enable a painting / photography interconnectivity? Central to the debate will be the focus on the blurred boundaries, common threads, antagonisms, distinctions, and growing interrelationship between painting, photography, and ‘the digital’ in the development of new creative practices.

    Hackpad Event: (play)ground - less / Luli Perez / Jane Frances Dunlop & Mira Loew

    What does it mean to be an artist in today’s digital and nomadic world?

    Who forms our community when we exist inside a global network?

    Where do we find the local when we are constantly on the move?

    What does it mean to inhabit the temporary?

    Itinerant Assembly interrogates these questions through a five-month programme of events which investigate the productive potential of temporary togetherness. The series of assemblies, which began in January this year, culminates in two final events this May: a new commission by emerging international artist group (play)ground - less, and a hackpad event based around a conversation between international participants, which will take place on an online collaborative document that can be updated in real time.
