Halifax, NS – Come C.(loser) is a group exhibition which is the result of Jan Peacock’s Media Landscape class at NSCAD University. Student artists – Vida Beyer, Natalie Boterman, Lisa Folkerson, Allison Higgins, Clair Hipditch, Nate Jones and Damien Worth – looked at the internet and the conversation between rapidly changing media (books to websites), in an effort, to understand how to negotiate contemporary means of communication and how to exist within this strange place – known to them as the “media landscape”.
Peacock’s 8 students developed a thorough investigation of how they situated themselves and experienced their own media landscapes through printed matter, video and performance.
Evidently, from the student queries and conversations, they came to a surreal understanding that “media landscape” is a space to live in and interact with. Find out how the artists located themselves into “media landscapes” and what identities were assumed to navigate the post-modern data space at the Khyber Institute for Contemporary Art, January 24th to January 29th, 2011 in Halifax, NS.
Come to the Khyber tonight – Monday, January 24th from 7pm-9pm – to meet the artists at the opening reception and to discuss the possibilities of “media landscapes”.
