Media artists question the relationship between authorship and audience. New forms of interaction put the audience at the heart of artistic production. The term public has undergone questioning by artists, appearing as a fragmented, multi-layered hybrid of different audiences, different communities, different publics.
Online, these different public spheres seem to undergo a new form of evolution: Convergence into a single space, further fragmentation into different social spheres, where engagement is often not just created but facilitated by practitioners. What new types of interactions are facilitated by artists through new technology? How can we learn from each other about the tools at our disposal? FLUX Social: Publics invites you to discuss these changing paradigms with other practitioners. Join us for a discussion on public art, participatory art forms and new forms of publics.
With Susan Sloan (National Centre for Computer Animation), Sofi Lee-Henson (XNN.Systems) and Tim Murray-Browne. Curated by Olive M Gingrich (ART IN FLUX) and co-hosted by ART IN FLUX co-founders Aphra Shemza and Maria Almena
