Curated by Andrianna Campbell and Daniel S. Palmer
In the 1913 Armory Show, the Association of American Painters and Sculptors endeavored to showcase the “New Spirit” of modern art. On its 100th anniversary, we will celebrate the Cubist paintings and sculptures in its galleries with an exhibition curated by Andrianna Campbell and Daniel S. Palmer featuring 27 contemporary artists at Henry Street Settlement’s Abrons Arts Center (466 Grand St, NYC). Their artworks explore changes in perception precipitated by our digital age, and closely parallel the cubist vernacular of fragmentation, non-linearity, simultaneity, and decenteredness. Our exhibition poses the question: What is the legacy of Cubism in the hundred years since the Armory Show’s radical display of modern European and American art, and especially, how has this become relevant again in our digital age?
Memoblast is a group performance in a fax-based office. Raquel Meyers, Jacob Sikker Remin and Goto80 are office workers who handle the flow of information by following rituals and rules for efficiency. They work with conventional office tools such as text editors and spreadsheets to create graphics, music and memos.
Fax is a dangerous and spontaneous technology, and Memoblast is open for you.

Omri Suleiman – Music For a 15 Year Old Me (CHIPFLIP 05)
Chipflip doesn’t try to emulate the album form. Instead, this is more similar to a music disk with its eerie PETSCII interface by Raquel Meyers and Goto80.

Text mode storytelling occurs in between written text and animation. The graphics appear to be images, but are in fact built with common text characters like O or /. With text mode, we refer to a preset font that is organized in a fixed grid on the screen. The music software we use also operates in text mode, forming a curious link to the visual content.
