September 6 – November 9 * It Narratives: The Movement of Objects as Information * Franklin Street Works * Stamford, CT

If you are in the NYC area visit Stamford Connecticut's Franklin Street Works, and the new show, It Narratives.  The show focuses on Mail Artists and Viral Artists, and the importance of the relationship between physical and digital communication. 50 copies of the new Adam Void minizine, "Mail Art" will be available at the show.

Franklin Street Works presents It Narratives: The Movement of Objects as Information, an exhibition featuring artists’ projects that engage the postal system and its intersections with digital communications media. The artists in It Narratives find forms for everyday experiences of distance and time by reflecting on the way objects move through information networks. The exhibition is curated by New York-based guest curators Brian Droitcour and Zanna Gilbert and will be on view from September 6 – November 9, 2014..

With areas of expertise in mail art (Gilbert) and Internet art (Droitcour), the curators take into consideration how Internet technology and digital forms of commerce have changed the way artists use the postal system to make work. Mail art emerged in the late 1960s as a collective, networked medium. It allowed artists to circulate and exchange works and ideas in a sphere uncontrolled by curators, institutions, the art market, or state censorship. Today, mail is employed less frequently as an artistic medium, in keeping with an overall shift in how information is experienced and exchanged. News and greetings from friends and family have migrated from the postal system to the faster networks of email and social media, yet “snail mail” has not become obsolete. Sending objects over great distances is part of online commerce. Print-on-demand services that allow users to design their own T-shirts, books, or mugs with a few clicks of a mouse connect Internet browsing and data input to receiving objects by mail and handling them in everyday life.

It Narratives: The Movement of Objects as Information takes its title from a prose genre popular in the late 18th century, the “it-narrative.” These were accounts of objects circulating in the structures of emergent industrialized capitalist markets written in the first-person from the perspective of the objects. It Narratives the exhibition updates this concept for the 21st century by presenting artists’ projects that track the movement of objects online and by mail, taking measure of the physical and emotional experiences of time and distance inherent to these networks.

curate nyc 2

Curate NYC
, A juried exhibition of NYC visual artists, along with The Andy Warhol Museum, The Fowler Arts Collective, and The Bronx River Art Center has chosen Adam Void for three online exhibitions.

Eric C. Shiner
Director
The Andy Warhol Museum


Eric C. Shiner is director of The Andy Warhol Museum. He joined the museum in 2008 as the Milton Fine Curator of Art, and he has served as director since January 2011. A curator, professor, writer, and translator, Shiner was an adjunct professor at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, and in 2007 he curated Making a Home: Japanese Contemporary Artists in New York at Japan Society in New York City. He also served as assistant curator of the Yokohama Triennale 2001.

After joining The Warhol, Shiner organized the large-scale exhibition, The End: Analyzing Art in Troubled Times. A proud native of New Castle, Pa., Shiner received his Bachelor of Philosophy in the History of Art & Architecture and Japanese Language & Literature at the University of Pittsburgh’s Honors College. He went on to receive the Japanese Government’s Ministry of Education Monbusho Prize and attended graduate school at Osaka University, where he earned an MA in the History of Art.

It was in his last semester at Osaka that Shiner interned in the curatorial department of The National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto, where he worked closely with Shinji Kohmoto, the museum’s chief curator, who would become his mentor. This led to Shiner becoming assistant curator of the Yokohama Triennale 2001. In addition to his museum work, Shiner is an active writer, lecturer, and translator; a contributing editor for Art AsiaPacific magazine; and an adjunct professor of art history at the University of Pittsburgh.
