Join us for the opening of Opening of MALcontents, MediaLive x Ello: International GIF Competition, Studio Project: aVoidHumanSystem, and Without Chasms: Infinite GIFs by William Brittelle + Artist Talks.
Ello x MediaLive: International Gif Competition
BMoCA and Ello – The Creators Network – present an International GIF Competition. Culled from 1000s of online submissions, talented Ello GIF community curators will select 20+ artists that best represent this year’s MediaLive theme – “the void”, and hang their work on the museum’s walls.
Media Archeology Lab: MALcontents
Media Archaeology Lab (MAL) provides direct access to defining moments in the history of computing. The MAL enables hands-on, cross-disciplinary experimental research and teaching using still-functioning but obsolete tools, software, hardware, and platforms from the past. This interactive exhibition of video game systems from the MAL’s collection features games related to “the void”.
Studio Project: aVoidHumanSystem
The Studio Project, BMoCA’s teen internship group, hosts events and programs to facilitate dialogue about art, art making, and social issues as they affect teens. This installation, aVoidHumanSystem, culminated from an artist residency with new media artists Zak Loyd and Ryan Wurst, wherein interns learned experimental video production and processes.
Without Chasms: Infinite GIFs by William Brittelle
Without Chasms: Infinite GIFs is a collaborative series of video loops created by filmmaker/GIF artist Josh Studham and composer William Brittelle. Each work in the series is designed as a retro-futuristic, deep web-inspired meditation on the emotional ramifications of cyberspace’s lack of physicality and dimensionality.
