The Channelers: A group exhibition curated by Lauren Marsden & Maria Fedorova – Particle + Wave

February 2, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm MST

Featuring works by Jeremy Bailey (Canada), Philip Huang (USA), Lorna Mills (Canada), Yoshi Sodeoka (USA/Japan), Sydney Southam (Canada), Rodell Warner (Trinidad & Tobago)

As a physical extension of Decoy Magazine’s ongoing series of digital art commissions, Bcc:, The Channelers showcases six artists who employ everyday digital materials and platforms such as Instagram, animated GIFs, YouTube videos, memes, banner ads, and online archives as channels for artistic expression. This exhibition involves the physical presentation of a compilation of digital artworks, which come in the form of a .jpg, .gif, .mp4, .mp3 or any other digital file small enough to be transferred swiftly and broadly. Taking Hito Steyerl’s 2009 essay In Defense of the Poor Image as a departure point, this exhibition will explore the importance of file size, resolution, and self-determined distribution channels across post-colonial, feminist, queer, and anti-censorship contexts.
