╰╮The Original Emoji Set Has Been Added to The Museum of Modern Art’s Collection
The Museum of Modern Art has just announced its acquisition of the original set of 176 emoji for its permanent collection. These 12 x 12 pixelated hieroglyphs were the first visual components to the nu-speak of the digital age with which we are now all so familiar.
Originally designed for pagers made by the Japanese mobile provider NTT DoCoMo and released in 1999, It would take another decade for emoji to explode into an American phenomenon, when Apple integrated its first emoji set for the iPhone in 2011. At the time of publication, there are now nearly 2,000 standardized emoji known to exist…
if you care as much about alternate characters and digital pictographs as i do, read this gr8 Emoji Art thinkpiece in which Paul Galloway states: “Filling in for body language, emoticons, kaomoji, and emoji reassert the human in the deeply impersonal, abstract space of electronic communication.”

╰╮PIPILOTTI RIST: PIXEL FOREST
10/26/16 – 01/15/17 ﹅ New Museum ﹅ 235 Bowery, New York
Occupying the three main floors of the Museum, “Pipilotti Rist: Pixel Forest” is the most comprehensive presentation of Rist’s work in New York to date. It includes work spanning the artist’s entire career, from her early single-channel videos of the 1980s, which explore the representation of the female body in popular culture, to her recent expansive video installations, which transform architectural spaces into massive dreamlike environments enhanced by hypnotic musical scores. Featuring a new installation created specifically for this presentation, the exhibition also reveals connections between the development of Rist’s art and the evolution of contemporary technologies. Ranging from the television monitor to the cinema screen, and from the intimacy of the smartphone to the communal experience of immersive images and soundscapes, this survey charts the ways in which Rist’s work fuses the biological with the electronic in the ecstasy of communication.

╰╮DREAMLANDS: IMMERSIVE CINEMA AND ART, 1905–2016
OCT 28, 2016–FEB 5, 2017 ﹅ Whitney Museum of American Art ﹅ 99 Gansevoort Street ﹅ New York, NY
Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016 focuses on the ways in which artists have dismantled and reassembled the conventions of cinema—screen, projection, darkness—to create new experiences of the moving image. The exhibition will fill the Museum’s 18,000-square-foot fifth-floor Neil Bluhm Family Galleries, and will include a film series in the third-floor Susan and John Hess Family Theater.
The exhibition’s title refers to the science fiction writer H.P. Lovecraft’s alternate fictional dimension, whose terrain of cities, forests, mountains, and an underworld can be visited only through dreams. Similarly, the spaces in Dreamlands will connect different historical moments of cinematic experimentation, creating a story that unfolds across a series of immersive spaces.

╰╮Side Gig – Anxious to Make
﹅ Exhibition Run: November 19th – December 15th ﹅ B4bel4b Gallery ﹅
184 10th St, Oakland, California
Side Gig is a multi-faceted showcase of new+old works from Anxious to Make, the collaborative practice of Liat Berdugo and Emily Martinez. Works include video pieces made using for-hire actors from Fiverr.com, a hypnosis audio track made by a “cloud-working hypnotist” and a “nap room” for sharing economy workers, complete with comfy pillows and cushions. Most intriguingly, a portion of the show (on view through Dec. 15) will only be visible to gig-workers hired as proxies for the “true” viewers. That means, to see the entirety of Side Gig, you’ll have to hire someone to look at it for you — or get hired out by someone else thus engaging in full immersion with Anxious to Make’s microcosmic display of our existence within ‘the Shared Economy”
╰╮The Gig is Up
V2_ ﹅ Eendrachtsstraat 10, 3012 XL Rotterdam, Netherlands ﹅ 25 NOV 2016 – 18 DEC 2016 ﹅
The Gig is Up – How New Technologies Are Reshaping The Future Of Work is an exhibition about cloud workers and forms of distributed and outsourced labour: the so-called ‘gig economy’. Online platforms – from Airbnb and Uber to Fiverr – which facilitate flexible working, suggest that it is possible to live more freely, more productively, and more profitably. Better even, they promise that you can be more independent and live according to your own rules. But it’s mostly a false promise. In the end, these platforms are profit-seeking companies. The works in this exhibition don’t just show the absurdities and delights of cloud-based labour, but also suggest ways to actualize the potential of the cloud-producing technologies to different, unexpected ends.*
The Gig is Up is curated by Sarah Cook and V2_.
