That was better than we could have imagined. Thank you.
Our annual holiday party takes place at Postmasters Gallery this year to celebrate generations of Eyebeam alums and friends working within the expanded narrative of technology. This year is also our first-ever auction of incredible works by these artists! It's an occasion for us to renew our commitment to artful and publicly-minded applications of technology, and we hope you'll join us.
Bidding is now over, but you can still see the incredible works!
ARTISTS (ALUMS and FRIENDS)
The Very First Year July 27, noon-10pm
Join us for a full-day event exploring aspects of gender, feminism, technology and art in consideration of the fact that since Eyebeam's founding 16 years ago, 2013 marks the very first year that its roster of Fellows and Residents includes more women than men.
Featuring afternoon installations and activities by Feminist Economics Department (the FED), Miki Foster, Jen Kennedy + Liz Linden, Queer Technologies, Cassie Thornton, and Caroline Woolard, and an evening potluck dinner with presentations of current work by numerous female Eyebeam Alumnae.
Exchange Cafe runs on an alternative currency that is validated by the requests of the people who use it.
Open until June 30th at MoMA's Cullman Research Building, Exchange Cafe features dairy from activist organizers Milk Not Jails, tea from anarchist network Feral Trade Courier, and honey from population control researchers at BeeSpace. An archive of artworks based on reciprocity and exchange, from barter to unconventional encounters, makes legible contemporary practices in art and activism. The waitstaff are activists, artists, and educators with direct experience with cooperative, alternative, and non-market economies.
