The Potentially Flawless Art Expo opens at 7pm. Through the aestheticizing of daily scrolling and screen absorption, nine invited artists interpret data collection and the relationship between online/offline navigation as a means of sociocultural critique. To these artists, the numerous forms of internet ads, clickbait, tutorials and spam emails are considered through a new and valuable lens, rather than as pollutants of online navigation. By adopting a mixed media approach, the digital dialogue expands into a variety of surfaces; painting, moving image and jacquard weaving all equally contribute to the cloud. The expo will run parallel to the Community Market until 9pm on Sunday April 2.
