    Press Release July 28, 2009

    VENERATIONS (Applause 1) by: caraballo-farman

    A Multi-channel video installation using DVD players, projectors, portable DVD players, televisions, and plexi-see thru mirrors.

    August 13th- September 5th 2009 in the Project Room for New Media, Ground Floor of the Chelsea Art Museum

    Culled from hundreds of hours of talk shows, late shows, reality shows, celebrity shows, award shows, life-style shows, game shows, and shows about shows, this installation takes TV applause to its logical end: no object or context, just the pure build up and downswing of collective clapping and hooting, an on-going show made up only of the audience. The New Media Project Room is filled with applause, reflected, refracted, repeated, in sound and video. The audience is the performer.

    Inciting applause has long been part of the manipulation, or perhaps the making, of an audience. Today’s American TV culture presents applause at its most ritualized, culturally-prevalent and prescriptive mode. ‘Live studio audience’ is an American cultural category, with personnel and staff dedicated to their guidance, to tell them what to do, when to clap, to wave frantically in the front and stir them up over something or other.

  • Artist Discussion with Eduardo Kac

    Arts & Culture, Communication Design


    Pioneer bio and internet artist Eduardo Kac will discuss his work “Reversed Mirror”, on display in Chelsea Art Museum’s Project Room for New Media until August 8. The discussion will be followed by a reception at 7 pm, and is free with museum admission.

    "Reversed Mirror" is a seven minute single channel videopoem. The text is a poem written by Kac from which he has created a constant flow and transformation of forms, presenting an ever-changing image of infinity that resonates in the context of the vastness of space. Oscillating particles emerge and evolve into ephemeral words, only to dissolve again and reemerge as new ephemeral words.

Draw-A-Thon is a reaction to art school and the tradition of figure drawing, as it restructures the typical context of drawing the nude by creating a naked theater troupe that will push all boundaries and hopefully set a new mark as a drawing subculture.

    The Draw-A-Thon Troupe is a collective of artists, musicians, performers, and art models, who collaborate through improvisation...
