The Internet has changed things, no? The new exhibit at the Center for Photography at Woodstock’s Main Gallery is a showcase for “five artists who create work within or through the radically democratized ‘free space’ of the web.” The artists are Christopher Baker, Petra Cortright, Jon Rafman, Rafael Rozendaal and Kate Steciw.
Pictured is a frame from Rozendaal’s towards and beyond.com (2010), a “web-native interactive animation, dimensions variable, duration infinite.”
Also opening at CPW (in the Kodak Gallery) is Adie Russell’s video installation I am (Richard Nixon), which will feature “five videos in which Russell inhabits iconic male figures from the 1950s-1970s, including Richard Alpert, Ingmar Bergman, Jack Kerouac, Richard Nixon and Marlon Brando.”
The Web Is a Lonely Place, Come Play and I am (Richard Nixon) open Saturday (Jan. 12) with a reception from 4-6 PM at the Center for Photography at Woodstock (59 Tinker St., Woodstock). The shows will be on view through March 31. For more info, call the gallery at (845) 679-9957.
