The Networked Avant-Garde | Talk at SITE Santa Fe
Speaker: Kelani Nichole | TRANSFER Download Curator
Saturday June 10 | 1pm
Location: SITE Santa Fe | 1606 Paseo de Peralta
Curator Kelani Nichole will give a free public talk at SITE Santa Fe as part of the opening weekend of the Currents New Media Festival. Titled “The Networked Avant-Garde,” her talk is presented by the Thoma Foundation in partnership with SITE Santa Fe and Currents New Media. Nichole discusses how the internet has changed the way that artists produce and share work, and how experimental galleries and institutions are disrupting the infrastructure of the art world.
She has presented versions of TRANSFER Download at NADA New York; the Chronus Art Center, Shanghai; HeK Basel; the Current Museum, New York City; and the Minnesota Street Project, San Francisco. Since 2013, Nichole has supported artists working with computer-based practices through TRANSFER, an exhibition space in Brooklyn exploring the friction between networked studio practice and its physical instantiation.
