Gallery features collaborative social media project
Nov. 1, 2013
The Community College of Rhode Island’s Knight Campus Art Gallery will show “#unmonumental,” a collaborative project with Joy Garnett and the college’s art students, from Nov. 5 to Dec. 5. A closing reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5, in the gallery.
“#unmonumental” is an ongoing social media performance that generates and instantly shares photographs of ephemeral artifacts in the New York City streets. Five years running and comprising more than 800 photographs, it has grown into a project of monumental proportions.
CCRI art students will appropriate the “unmonumental” library and manipulate the images using digital and analog processes. Students’ resulting responses to Garnett’s project will be shown alongside a digital projection of Garnett’s photographs.
Garnett is an interdisciplinary artist and writer living in Brooklyn, N.Y. Her paintings, based on images she gathers from the Internet, examine the apocalyptic sublime at the intersections of media, politics and culture. Her social media projects engage the crossroads of our digital and material worlds. She teaches a seminar in the Master of Fine Arts program at City College and pens a regular column for Art21 Magazine. She is represented by Winkleman Gallery, New York.
The gallery is located in Room 3500, on the third floor of the round building at the Warwick campus, 400 East Ave. Gallery hours are from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
