In the name of the media, what saturates our contemporary life is violently intensified and magnified by the evolving technologies. Overwhelmingly yet numbingly, we are urged to embrace the new possibilities of experience, the value of which we take for granted so frivolously. What issues, emerging now or before, are urgent enough to critically address by artists? And what questions, concerning now or future, are relevant enough to emphatically formulate?
Featuring artists from diverse artistic and cultural backgrounds, this screening event showcases the works that display artists’ strong concerns over and through media, examining the specific issues that are revealed, dodged and created in today’s media environment. Their efforts, instead of settling the audience into any firmly framed media discourse, should only encourage us to question and explore our positions in the vast universe of mediated realities.
Participant artists: Hiba Ali, Jennifer Chan, Constant Dullaart, Arash Fayez, Oliver Laric, Kevin B. Lee, Peter Lee, Weiyi Li, Zhangbolong Liu, Jonathan Perez
