Live from Athens on Cannibal Radio

May 25th, 2017 · Comments

Live streaming from Cannibal Radio in Athens, Greece, we introduce you to four of the city’s young culture makers. My co-hosts are Rena Bak and Simos Ares, two of the independent radio station’s forty producers. They both specialize in electronic music. Joining us in the studio are two Athens residents involved with documenta 14, the  international art exhibition presented every five years in Kassel, Germany. For the first time this year, documenta comes to both Kassel and Athens. Katerina Nikou, assistant curator of document 14 Public Programs in Athens, describes the talks, programs and performances and the television broadcast of a short film series designed to engage locals. Also on the air with us is Nikos Nikolopoulos, a filmmaker working with American Rick Lowe on a community project with residents in the neighborhood surrounding Victoria Square. In the past two years, Victoria Square, historically a neighborhood park and public gathering space, has served as the site of a refugee camp.

Note: Today, May 17, 2017, workers staged a 24-hour general strike in Athens to protest the voting on new austerity measures proposed by the government. The strike halted the metro to the airport, flights to and from Athens and city bus service. The following conversations represent the second take of our program, as a blackout interrupted our first broadcast.

The Future of Art

May 3rd, 2017 · Comments

Welcome to the Future of Art! We begin to talk about technologies that are transforming our global art eco-system—from art making to art history, from community engagement to collecting, and more.

Art Seeker founder and art collector, Helene Lamarque, along with Emmanuel Trenche, product marketing manager, share how Art Seeker is disrupting the art market by bringing art buyers and sellers together using geolocation technology.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens team members Mark Osterman (education and engagement) and Gina Wouters (contemporary art program), with Harry Tapias (Vizcaya’s digital visioning task force), take you behind the curtain to reveal the museum’s evolving involvement with new technologies—from experiments with 3-D and virtual reality to curating exhibitions that pair artists with tech experts.
