Wired.com published an article today about the experimental art/tech incubator that the New Museum has launched, which the Privacy Gift Shop is part of. I was interviewed by Liz Stenson from Wired about my perspectives on balancing art and commerce.
Privacy first: before reading the article, I recommend installing an ad-blocking extension like Disconnect. And, here's the article: http://www.wired.com/2014/06/a-tech-incubator-that-silicon-valley-will-never-understand/
This fall the Privacy Gift Shop will join NEW INC, the first museum-led incubator or art and technology. NEW INC begins in September and is a year long program for artists to develop their practice. The space will include more fabrication tools than I had access to before, which means my studio, Undisclosed LLC will have more capabilities for producing new items for the gift shop.
We're very excited to be a part of NEW INC starting in September 2014.
Planning 2014. The Privacy Gift Shop will travel to Tel Aviv for an installation, workshop, and more.
The Privacy Gift Shop will be on view in Amsterdam in January 2014 for the FACELESS exhibition.
FACELESS at Mediamatic Fabriek in Amsterdam, Netherlands
Opening: January 25, 2014
On view through April 13, 2014
