Streaming and art museum


Mettiamo in evidenza una interessante iniziativa di promozione e diffusione di opere d'arte, che mira al centro del problema: quanto ormai l'idea di museo sia in cambiamento tra nuove tecnologie di comprensione globale e nuove forme di arte.
L'idea di un museo in streaming on line e in piazze del mondo, sembra cogliere la sfida del nostro tempo.L'esposizione è in corso sino al 29 febbraio, curata da Nina Colosi (http://www.theprojectroom.org/) fondatrice dello straming museum che con questo programma e con alcuni artisti arriva nei diversi continenti di questo mondo e in una land dell'altro mondo come è quello di Second Life. di seguito l'intero manifesto dell'iniziativa

The opening exhibition is a 38-minute video work, Good Morning Mr. Orwell, by pioneer video artist Nam June Paik. This entertaining transcontinental musical extravaganza was broadcast by satellite on January 1 of the Orwellian year 1984. It interweaves fine art and pop culture icons including Laurie Anderson, Peter Gabriel, Merce Cunningham, Salvador Dali, Philip Glass, John Cage, pop singers Sapho and The Thompson Twins, and many others. Paik's ideas in the 1970s about the "information superhighway” and global connectivity forecast the Internet. Consult location venues and www.StreamingMuseum.org/info for scheduled screenings of Good Morning Mr. Orwell and work by other contemporary, visual, performing, fashion and theater artists, beginning January 29 until April 24, 2008. In addition to curated programming, visitors at each location are invited to a “Global Meetup” by uploading pictures via cell phone or email to www.StreamingMuseum.org/globalmeetup using an address displayed at the location. The images can be viewed on monitors at Streaming Museum venues around the world according to local schedules, and on the website through February 29.
