"Uncurateable Art" is an international networked event in which a group of Cornell artists will participate. During his visit this spring, Maurice Benayoun invited Renate Ferro, visiting assistant professor of art, and her students enrolled in "Relational_Art_Media_Movement" to synchronize a networked collaborative project from Cornell, using The Art Collider. The Art Collider is both a tool and a virtual networked space allowing cross-disciplinary artists to forge international exchanges of images and ideas in the areas of art, design, and interactive technology. During the "Uncurateable Art” event participating artists will upload their contributions in tandem, joining other artists from The San Francisco Art Institute; the School of Visual Arts, New York; Kunstuniversität, Linz, Austria; L'Université du Québec, Montréal; La fonderie de l'image, Bangnolet, France; and the University of California-Berkeley.
In addition to being virtually viewable, the event will be assembled and projected on April 6 in the CIT Lab in Tjaden, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in tandem with the project's opening at 5:30 p.m. Paris time. The exhibition will continue in Paris from April 7 to 16, from 2 to 7:30 p.m. at La Bellevilloise, 19-21 Rue Boyer, Paris.
