“Nothing – including ourselves – can be defined intrinsically; we are all in some sense extrinsic and relational achievements, conflations of body, culture, environment, technology. Moreover, the predominance of televisual and imaging technologies in contemporary technoculture has meant that our visual tools become inseparable from what we might discern as our own perceptual and bodily boundaries as ‘access’ to the world.”
Ingrid Richardson, Telebodies & Televisions: Corporeality and Agency in Technoculture, 2003
TELECULTURE is a survey that brings together a diverse group of new media artists, whose work - ranging from photography to online virtual reality - embodies, a cross section of thought that investigates perceptions of identity in the early 21st century. Pace Digital Gallery offers a unique and challenging public environment, where as, through the sheer verticality of the space, the selected artworks combine to visually communicate a sense of claustrophobic post-millennial anxiety mixed with an un-definable euphoria, liberation, and freedom.
TELECULTURE will also be included as a featured video project at the Zones Contemporary Art Fair to be held during Art Basel Miami Beach from Thursday, December 6 to Monday, December 10, 2007, from 10am to 7pm. Edge Zones is a Miami based nonprofit 501c3 gallery, located in World Arts Building, 2214 N. Miami Ave., Miami Fl, 33127, in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District.
Please join us for a brunch reception and artist talk, Friday December 7, 11am. Artists present along with curator Lee Wells Pace Digital Gallery director Jillian Mcdonald will discuss the exhibition along with their thoughts on video and new media art today.
