Expanded Cinema Fiftieth-Anniversary Edition Book Launch

Join us for an online event next Thursday, 3/19 - RSVP to [email protected] for stream link/reminder: Published fifty years ago, Gene Youngblood’s Expanded Cinema was a landmark account of early media arts in the US, written by a self-described “twenty-six-year-old former crime reporter with only a high school education.” With an introduction by R. Buckminster Fuller, the book offered an in-depth account of artists working with light shows, immersive projection, computer-generated imagery, and television, and addressed topics from sexuality to political revolution. To mark its fiftieth-anniversary re-release by Fordham University Press, Michael Connor will host an online screening and a conversation about Expanded Cinema and its legacy, featuring Youngblood.

Paradise: on EDM, Speculation, and Finance

"Certain styles of music reward contemplation because they suggest rich new worlds of sonic possibility–the sounds actively seek to adjust the shape of things to come–and, by contrast, EDM is frighteningly interesting for how at home it is in the ouroboros of financial logic." - Alexander Iadarola

Alexander Iadarola explores EDM and financial capitalism's entanglement after the crash.

Laurel Schwulst's Decade in Internet

"It’s a daunting task to boil down the past ten years of the internet into only ten colors. But I’m a web designer… who started working professionally in 2010… so I subjectively choose some memorable colors directly from websites I’ve designed these past ten years… and I’ve also included some favorites from our collective screen-based unconscious."

Laurel Schwult's 10 colors to commemorate the last decade (and 1 to forget).

For the past two or so years, Rhizome has told the story of the web as a core material, subject, and inspiration for innovative contemporary art, through events, publishing, preservation, and online access. This year, we capstoned that story with the gallery exhibition and publication: "The Art ...

NET ART ANTHOLOGY: One Terabyte of Kilobyte Age

“Users’ endeavors, like glittering star backgrounds, photos of cute kittens and rainbow gradients, are mostly derided as kitsch or in the most extreme cases, postulated as the end of culture itself. In fact, this evolving vernacular, created by users for users, is the most important, beautiful and misunderstood language of new media.”

NET ART ANTHOLOGY: Post Internet

“Post Internet embraced the network as form as well as subject matter. Through McHugh’s serial updates, punctuated by quotations and comments from readers, the blog engaged deeply with the internet’s increasingly significant effects on artistic creation and production, and on art criticism itself.”

A WordPress blog created by writer and curator Gene McHugh between December 2009 and September 2010, Post Internet was an exercise in art criticism as well as a performative work of art. The blog contended with many of the key issues of the early postinternet moment, in which artists contended wit.....
