    Why The #OpenInternet Is Important for Artists and Art Organizations

    from Americans For The Arts: What is “net neutrality?” It’s the idea that your Internet service provider (ISP), like Verizon or Comcast, doesn’t discriminate when it comes to Internet traffic-meaning throttling or blocking legal content that you want to access or share.

    Curiot in SF for FFDG Exhibit Finishes Work On New Mural

    Mexican artist Curiot is currently in in the city and just finished working on a new mural now on display downtown. The wall was curated by Upper Playground and Fifty24SF Gallery. The Curiot exhibit at FFDG, “Down the Rabbit Hole with Neon Lights,” runs through April 18th. The gallery says of Curio and his work, Curiot’s colorful paintings, featuring mythical half-animal half-human figures and scenes, which allude to Mexican traditions (geometric designs, Day of the Dead styles, myths and legends, tribal elements), are rendered in precise detail with a mixture of highly vibrant yet complementary colors. Inspired from Pre-Hispanic cultures, nature and urban contemporaneity, the artist explores […]

    POSTER: SAN FRANCISCO MAYOR ANNOUNCES HOUSING PLAN

    by Mark Gould  JAN 15 2015 I don’t knock these illustrations out in a day anymore; it’s taken me a few months to get this one in shape. But it’s a work in progress and still not finished. I wanted to put something online though, since today San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee formally announced the specifics of his new housing program, focused on creating affordable housing into the future for low income and middle class city residents. The concept for the poster speaks for itself. It seemed like a clever idea I hadn’t seen and I’m pretty happy with where […]

    San Francisco: Art and Culture Notes for January 13, 2015

    by Mark Gould JAN 13, 2015 Paradise Turns to Parking Lot Then Into a Parklet, Tryin’ to Keep What You Got Before It’s Gone Tensions between the local art community and the forces of economic growth in San Francisco are now running high on a regular basis, and making the news with some frequency. Last week Courthouse News reported that eight artists have filed a lawsuit against Zephyr Rreal Estate for reproducing their mural art in a 2013 promotional calendar. The story named the plaintiffs in the suit as Francisco Aquino, Mona Caron, Susan Kelk Cervantes, Jetro Martinez, Sirron Norris, Henry Sultan, Jennifer Badger Sultan and […]

Art, New Media, and Social Memory by Richard Rinehart and Jon Ippolito asks the question of how our increasingly digital civilisation will persist beyond our lifetimes. The authors focus on the preservation of new media art as a case study in new media’s broader challenge to social memory. Rinehart and Ippolito are well-known names in the field of media art preservation; both have respectively worked in the

    Media Arts Notes, January 20, 2015

    M. Lamar, NEGROGOTHIC, Warhol Foundation Gives $4 Million To Grantees, and Art From a Techno-ecological Perspective A quite timely exhibit opening January 30th at the San Francisco Art Institute’s Walter and McBean Galleries through February 28M 2015 that explores topics of race, equality, violence and optimism. The exhibit is curated by Hesse McGraw, Vice President for Exhibitions and Public Programs. M. Lamar’s exhibition NEGROGOTHIC strips the American enterprise to its hardcore components of race, sexuality, violence, and optimism. In imagery that links the histories of slavery and Robert Mapplethorpe, and through sound that connects Lamar’s operatic counter-tenor with doom metal, the artist offers a searing

    Glenda Amayo Caldwell and Marcus Foth: DIY Media Architecture: Open and Participatory Approaches to Community Engagement

    From the recently concluded Proceedings of the 2nd Media Architecture Biennale Conference: World Cities, held in Aarhus, Denmark, Glenda Amayo Caldwell and Marcus Foth presented their paper: DIY Media Architecture – Open and Participatory Approaches to Community Engagement Abstract: Media architecture’s combination of the digital and the physical can trigger, enhance, and amplify urban experiences. In this paper, we examine how to bring about and foster more open and participatory approaches to engage communities through media architecture by identifying novel ways to put some of the creative process into the hands of laypeople. We review technical, spatial, and social aspects of DIY

    Memes As Art: Media Installation Artist Dave Greber

    by Mark Gould, Editor – Photosynthesis Media Arts and Theory Journal (republished from my other blog) For a while now, I’ve wanted to write and introduce you to the work of media installation artist Dave Greber, part of the New Orleans based artist collective The Front. David belongs to a group of video artists, experimental cinema producers, writers and other artists who are exploring popular culture and it’s media conduit, exposing the often subliminal propaganda-style messages we are all confronted by every day, and in doing so invites all of us to examine media memes and the roles they play
