Time Travelers @ polvo

There only needs to be one Time Based Art Show, you can set your Time Machine’s Coordinates to the following event:

Time Travelers: Time Based Art Show and Panel Discussion
Curated by [Amelia Winger-Bearskin]
June 29 - July 28, 2007

Opening June 29th at 6pm - 10pm, Live performances begin at 7pm
Panel Discussion Saturday June 30th at 3pm followed by an encore sound art performance

Time Traveler’s is a holistic look at pre-apocalyptic, post-feminist, trans-structuralist, and post post-modern misadventures. Time Traveler’s celebrates misanthropic investigations of human relationships, subversion, and mayhem of any variety; we are actively against describing ourselves anything as simple as avant-garde. Time Travelers recognizes that NEW MEDIA has incorrectly been identified as the repository for all art technologies utilizing a video camera, a computer, and an electrical outlet, but insists that as artists, first and foremost, we can use any f*&%@!’n media we want!

Artists Featured:
Donata Napoli

At 3pm on Saturday june 30th we are holding the Time Travelers Panel discussion:

Each time a loaded art word is used, two or more universes will be created in which differing ideas become the dominate paradigm [Everett-Wheeler Graham Theory of Branching Universes]. The following panelists will be but may not be in attendance [Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle]:

  • Suntek Chung a well known Performance Artist and Photographer
  • Christopher Borkowski co-founder of the video portal [PAM] Perpetual Art Machine
  • Guiniviere Webb a time based art educator.
  • Patricht Lichty a Professor of Interactive Arts and Media at Columbia College Chicago

The most contentious art movement since the Dadaists, this Time Traveler community discussion on time, space, art and possibilities will occur. Due to the implications of Bell’s Therom, it will link listeners at a Quantum Level across n-dimensional Hilbert Space. WARNING: This panel may be outrageous, and may use utilize a ridiculous blend of word-salad artspeak. Please, a special request to time travelers: check in before teleporting during the panel.

Free Manifestos available at Polvo


Patricht Lichty bio:
For much of the past ten years, much of Patrick Lichty's performance has involved issues including presence/anonymity and critical personae, collaborating with Guillermo Gomez-Pena, Fluxus, Annie Sprinkle, and RTMark. For this panel, Patrick will appear as the shape-shifting Second Life performance artist, Man Michinaga. Man will take part in the discussion and "respond" from his virtual padded room. What part does public persona have to do with the artist as object? Here, What You See is What You Get. Patrick Lichty is a technologically-based conceptual/performance artist, writer, independent curator,
co-founder of Second Front, the first performance art company in Second Life, animator for the activist group, The Yes Men, and Editor-in-Chief of Intelligent Agent Magazine in NYC. Venues in which Lichty has been involved with solo and collaborative works include the Whitney Biennial as well as the International Symposium on the Electronic Arts (ISEA). He is currently Professor of interactive Arts and Media at Columbia College Chicago.

Marina Zurkow works with character and narrative in animated cartoons, interactive installations, print and pop objects.

Zurkow's recent projects include The Space Invaders, a site-specific single channel video for WNET/PBS in New York; and the seven channel animated installation, Nicking the Never, which premiered at FACT in the U.K. in 2004. She's created the award-winning episodic cartoon Braingirl, chronicling a mutant-cute girl who wears her insides on the outside; Pussy Weevil, or How I Learned to Love the War, a vile cartoon persona who reacts to a viewer's proximity; and PDPal, a public art project for screen, web and mobile devices that allows a user to ìwrite her own cityî (with architect Scott Paterson and technologist Julian Bleecker). Zurkow's icons and characters have been incorporated into films, hotel design, lightboxes and clothing.

Upcoming projects include Karaoke Ice, a truck with a persona that stages karaoke battles for ISEA/ZeroOne, the San Jose Biennial in 2006, and Funnelhead, which will be realized as a graphic novel and as an animated, sculptural installation.

Zurkow's work has been exhibited at Sundance, the Rotterdam Film Festival, Ars Electronica, Creative Time, The Kitchen, the Walker Art Center, the Brooklyn Museum, SFMoMA, Eyebeam Atelier, and bitforms gallery, and has been broadcast on MTV, Fuji TV and PBS. She is a 2005 NYFA Fellow, a 2003 Rockefeller New Media Fellow, and received grants in 2005 from the New York State Council on the Arts, and in 2001-2002 from Creative Capital, the Jerome Foundation and the Walker Art Center. She teaches at NYU's Interactive Technology Program (ITP) and lives in Brooklyn.

Enforced explanation and warning

Time Travelers: Time Based Art ShowUnfortunatelly, I am not part of the exhibition "Time Travelers: Time Based Art Show" in Chicago. I feel emberessed over the fact that I will not be in an exhibition which I told many people I would participate. I want to say sorry to you all and want you to know why this happened.

I found out that I am not one of the participants after that I informed many people by email, interviews and my blogg. This has come like a bad surprice to me since I sincerely believed this nonprofessional curators personal invitation to me to participate her exhibition was serious. She received all material for the exhibition from me and all aggrements were done.

I checked out the gallery website of curiosity and got a chock by the artist-list that not included me. Apparently she had changed her mind without informing me and when I required an explanation, she made things even worse by saying that it was just an missunderstanding and that I was not going to be in the exhibition. I could maybe accept the fact that she changed her mind without informing me but telling me that I missunderstood things really made me angry and dissapointed of this arrogant treatment.

Allthough I have all the documents and rights on my side, I have decided not to go on with this struggle but I still believe that it's my duty to inform and warn artists that may co-work with this nonprofessional curator in the future.
