Art in the Age of the Ubiquitous Image

Teamrockstar Road Trip - Lemonaid Lookbook

On Tuesday, October 1st, I will be doing an event at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University on Art in the Age of the Ubiquitous Image.

From the site:

Two hundred years ago, artists had the monopoly on image making.  Now, every parade or disaster is accompanied by ten thousand twitpics.  In a world where mobile technology has made images instantaneous and ubiquitous, what does visual art have left to say? Drawing on her experiences doing illustrated journalism around Guantanamo Bay and the Greek economic crisis, Molly Crabapple speak about the role of art in a world captured by a million cameras.

The event is on Oct 1st at 12:30pm at the Berkman Center, 23 Everett St, 2nd Floor. There will also be a live webcast for those of you who cannot attend in person. You can RSVP on the event page.
