The Other APT Online Exhibition

online launch – December 1, 2009

‘the other APT‘, a multi-art form exhibition produced to coincide with and respond to the Queensland Art Gallerys Asia Pacific Triennial, with a similar focus – of art within the Asia-Pacific region. However, in the interest of protocol, best practice and inclusiveness, artworks were sought locally, within Australia, to highlight the fact that we have an interesting hybrid mix of artists, right here, right now, and are also in dialogue with the first people of Australia.

Presented by cyberTribe which has a decade of history in online curating, the other APT for 2009 is only featured as an online exhibition allowing access for far-reaching audiences internationally. Curator Jenny Fraser says of the exhibition “The primary curatorial premise of the other APT is to show artworks from Indigenous Australian Artists, and also show meaningful works from other Artists that may constitute them as a friend in culture and good visitor to this country, in meaningful dialogue and otherwise. In other words, Aboriginals actively engaging with each other, and those from other cultural backgrounds – Torres Strait Islander, Australian South Sea Islander, Maori, Samoan, Fijian, Tongan, Chinese, Vietnamese, Filipino and others, providing a true survey and commenting on individual and shared experience. Naturally some of these works are collaborations – existing works, and also works produced especially for the other APT, but all really important discourse, culturally and historically.

the other APT from 2006 was also selected for inclusion in the 2008 Biennale of Sydney. As part of the Biennale, Revolutions – Forms That Turn, Artistic Director Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev selected digital artworks and texts to be featured in its Online Venue. The exhibition as a whole and the Online Venue particularly, focussed on the different ways artists have ‘revolutionised’ contemporary art. It explored the impulse to revolt, rotating, turning upside down, shifting points of view, revolving, mirroring and reversing as formal devices, as well as chart their broader aesthetic, psychological, psychoanalytical, radical and political perspectives.

“Being acknowledged in the Biennale of Sydney has again brought great importance to the relevance of online galleries as an exhibition venue”, said artist/curator Jenny Fraser.

the other APT from 2006 also toured to the Tjibaou Cultural Centre in Noumea, New Caledonia in 2008 which was a great success.

Critique from 2006:

“We all try to mediate the spaces in-between these binaries and I cannot help but imagine the Other APT in these terms. Mediating the social and cultural imaginaries of Indigeneity, it plots a landscape where tradition and disenfranchisement overlap and contradict each other and these inconsistencies intersect the exhibition’s themes of place, legend, identity, politics and mutual respect.”

Kylie Gaffney

The Other APT: An Exhibition of Other Perspectives

One of the nagging criticisms of Brisbane’s hugely successful Asia Pacific Triennale has been their handling of ‘the Aboriginal problem’ and finding a space for the Asian and Pacific within us; those local Australian societies of Asian and Pacific heritage who have had a long and deep relationship with our national identity; though often folded/secreted within. Finding a credible comfortable conceptual space and opportunity for local participation rather than artist heroes from major economic giants of the region has lingered as a quandary of what has otherwise been a major achievement.

JUE, 22 OCT 2009 – LUN, 05 ABR 2010

FEEDFORWARD – The Angel of History addresses the current moment in history where the wreckage of political conflict and economic inequality is piling up, while globalized forces—largely enabled by the “progress” of digital information technologies—inexorably feed us forward. The exhibition title references Paul Klee’s painting Angelus Novus, which Walter Benjamin famously interpreted as an “angel of history” transfixed by the wreckage of the past that is piling up in front of him while being propelled backwards into the uncertain future by a storm from paradise (progress).

The exhibition, curated by Steve Dietz (Artistic Director of the 01SJ Biennial) and Christiane Paul (Director of the Media Studies Graduate Program, New School, NY; Adjunct Curator of New Media Arts, Whitney Museum of American Art) features 29 artworks by 27 artists and artist teams. The projects are presented, as if in the rear view mirror of progress, in sections relating to five themes: the “wreckage” of the 20th century created by wars and conflict; the countermeasures of surveillance and repression that the state as well as global capital set up in an to attempt to maintain control; the aesthetics and symbolic language of the media of our times; the forces of economic globalization such as outsourcing and migration; and the possibilities of reconstruction and agency.

Together, the projects featured in FEEDFORWARD create a complex picture of the global political and social forces that drive us forward. The exhibition features both the problematic aspects of the present and future, and the potential for collectivity and responsible action. At the nadir of the current global economic crisis, FEEDFORWARD is in effect about cleaning up after the 20th century and asks the question, what is progress now?

GAMA@Ars Electronica: The Launch

Launch of the Portal: GAMA @ Ars Electronica Festival

On the occasion of the Ars Electronica Festival 2009 the econtentPlus project GAMA – Gateway to Archives of Media Art – is launching a portal to the eight founding European archives with a workshop and a screening installation of selected works from the collections.

Workshop “Archiving Media Art: Politics and Strategies”
Sept 5th, 2 pm at the Kunstuniversität Linz, Kollegiumgasse 2, Audimax.

Experts will discuss the significance of the institutional setting with respect to the creation of the repositories and their future perspectives. Additionally, artists will present new ways of documentation of media art which tend to integrate the user experience into a documentation strategy for media art works – or even into the works themselves.

Speakers: Annet Dekker (Virtueel Platform, Amsterdam), Anna-Karin Larsson (Filmform, Stockholm), Gerfried Stocker (Ars Electronica, Linz), Matt Adams (Blast Theory, Brighton), Gabriella Giannachi (University of Exeter), Caitlin Jones (Free curator and media theorist, New York), Lizzie Muller (University of Technology, Sydney) Concept: Gabriele Blome (Ludwig Boltzmann Institute Media.Art.Research., Linz)

Screening Installation in the Brucknerhaus
From 03-09-2009 until 08-09-2009

In the History Lounge the eight European media art archives and collections networked within the GAMA portal are screening highlights from their collections.

For example works by Lars Arrhenius, Yael Bartana, Robert Cahen, Gerard Cairaschi, Mounir Fatmi, Toshio Iwai, Ema Kugler, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Cecilia Lundqvist, Vincent Meessen, Jean-Gabriel Périot, Sašo Podgoršek, Semiconductor, Shelly Silver, János Sugár and Gianni Toti will be shown.
