This last spring, Hyperallergic launched a new series of talks in which leaders from the NY art world discuss their creative projects and endeavors in an open dialogue with readers. The series has so far included:
- Klaus Biesenbach, Director of MoMA PS1, and Chief Curator at large at The Museum of Modern Art
- AA Bronson, co-founder of General Idea, and artist Carlos Motta
- RoseLee Goldberg, Founder & Director of Performa, and author of Performance Art: From Futurism to the Present
Klaus Biesenbach discussed Expo 1: New York, an exhibition that was largely a response to the devastating events of Hurricane Sandy. Artists AA Bronson and Carlos Motta presented on ‘The Body, Spirit, Sex, Community, Magic and the Other’. The pair discussed the role of eroticism and sensuality in art, with Bronson modestly ruminating on the fact that his practice continues to inspire successive generations of artists. At the most recent talk, RoseLee Goldberg, discussed her passion for performance art, discussing both its history and evolution.
Held at The Bedford in Williamsburg, the reaction to the series was overwhelming, with tickets to all three events sold out in advance. The event hashtag #ArtTalk invited it’s share of praise and humor. Following the popular success of Art Talk, Hyperallergic plans to continue and expand the series. So stay tuned for further announcements!
On March 9, 2013, Hyperallergic and Tumblr joined forces to present “The World’s First Tumblr Art Symposium.”
This project, which was part discussion and part exhibition, explored the fast-evolving artistic landscape of Tumblr, one of the world’s leading social media and blogging platforms. The World’s First Tumblr Art Symposium builds on Hyperallergic’s active public discussion about the relationship of social media and art that began with its landmark 2010 exhibition#TheSocialGraph (hyperallergic.com/thesocialgraph/), which broke new ground in its exploration of art on social media.
Registration for the event sold out within 24 hours and was featured on sites like Wired, Laughing Squid, Brooklyn Magazine, Content.ly, and many others. The event was a great end to New York’s upcoming Armory Week and a huge milestone for Hyperallergic, Tumblr and the art world.
