Dear Diary: Update All - Neuberger Museum of Art
Add to Calendar 04-01-2014 16-03-2014 15 Dear Diary: Update All With the advent of social networking and mobile communications, the diary has evolved from private medium to a forum for public consideration and collaborative thought, where the personal becomes a platform for social interaction, reflection, and activism. A new exhibition at the Neuberger Museum of Art addresses private versus public space, how we connect and interact, as the personal and private are merged with the public. "Dear Diary: Update All," will be on view at the Neuberger Museum of Art of Purchase College from January 4 through March 16, 2014. The exhibition of 20 international artists and 30 artworks explores how artists express their individual and collective identities, and the relationships among memory, document, and fiction. The mixed media exhibition presents work that uses online data, remembrance, handiwork, genetics, gaming, and Google to mark the discord, beauty, and banality that occur each day. According to Jacqueline Shilkoff, the Museum's Curator of New Media, Dear Diary will be "an exciting forum for ideas and interaction." Adding another dimension to the show, students from Purchase College, SUNY will be on site during Museum hours to engage in conversation with visitors about the exhibition as well as help them navigate the show and interact with the artwork. "The artists express an astounding range of poetic philosophical expressions," Shilkoff adds. Among the artworks in the exhibition is the installation "A Charge for Privacy" (2013), an electronic phone charging station created by Nick Briz, Paul X. Briz, and Ramon Branger. The work is intuitive, featuring the familiar routine of charging a phone battery and offering viewers to charge their phones. The artists, however, introduce a barrier: an agreement to the terms of use for this charging station. From this entry point, our digital history stored in our phones creates voluntary (and involuntary) representations of ourselves. Another piece, Editor Solitario (2011) by Colombian artist Oscar Munoz, focuses on the interrelation of images and memory, exploring the ephemeral and vulnerable nature of human life. It is a black-and-white projection onto a table depicting photographs: formal portraits and family snapshots, celebrity photos, painters' self-portraits, postmortem photos, and police sketches. An unseen subject extends an arm to place photographs on the table, removing some, exchanging others, pausing, covering, and quickly removing them. Munoz combines personal and cultural histories, merging found images of the living with found images of the dead in an ambiguous narrative of individual and national memory, loss, and hope. Other artists and collaborators in the exhibition include: Kannan Arunasalam, Chloe Bass, Nick Briz, Paul X. Briz, Ramon Branger, Victor Castro, Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen, Chris Collins, Eric Eberhardt, Zach Gage, Mark McKenna, Amanullah Mojadidi, Molleindustria, Oscar Munoz, Laura Splan, Aalam Wassef, YoHa with Matthew Fuller. Generous support for "Dear Diary: Update All" is provided by Marcy Kahn. Additional funding is provided by RBC Wealth Management, the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and the Purchase College Foundation. The Neuberger Museum of Art will present various programs in conjunction with the exhibition. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=154080 Neuberger Museum of Art true DD/MM/YYYY
