Art and the internet: When the virtual is more real than the physical by G.L.

This article is about an exhibition that took place at the Pace Gallery in New York’s Chelsea district. The title of the exhibition was “Social Media” and the pieces of artwork centered around (you guessed it) social media! A more in-depth description from the article states…

The exhibition “Social Media”, which opened at Pace yesterday with a panel discussion with five of the artists, is—as the title suggests—a compilation of art about social media, with works dating back up to a dozen years. It immediately raises a problem: what do you lose, and what do you gain, when you take a medium that is inherently dynamic, interactive and virtual, and turn it into the frozen, unresponsive and all-too-physical form of exhibits in a gallery?

Although the exhibition took place in 2011, it is still a relevant topic and pertains to our class. Also, I know there is a trip planned to the Chelsea district of New York for Eastern art students so I thought this would be an interesting read. You can check it out here!
