Subject: for immediate release: February Exhibition

Artemisia Gallery Chicago
- ---
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February Exhibition
Show Dates: February 1st  to February 24th
Opening Reception: Friday, February 2nd, 5-8 PM

Main Gallery: Rina Yoon
Korean Printmaker Rina Yoon has lived and worked in the United States
for over 18 years.  Her dreamlike collographs express her experience the
sense of timelessness that comes from living this double identity,
belonging in two places yet belonging in neither.   Her collographs are
created using an extraordinarily wide range of tools, drawing directly
on the plate with power tools or an etching needle, applying various
textured materials, and cutting the plates into various shapes.  Her
presentation is also unconventional, presenting the prints mounted and
canvas on stretchers.  Yoon is an Assistant Professor of Printmaking at
the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design.

Gallery A: Deanna Lee
Deanna Lee's beautiful and obsessive paintings and sculptures merge and
transform the realistic rendering and the cartoon.  A recent graduate of
the MFA in Painting and Drawing at The School of the Art Institute of
Chicago, Deanna is the recipient of this year's Linda Kramer Fund Award
for Exhibition.

Gallery B: Rasa Staniuniene 'In Space'
Lithuanian artist Rasa Staniuniene's exhibition at Artemisia has been in
the planning for several years.  Artemisia Gallery Member Louise
McKissick met Rasa while working on the CAIP sponsored Observatory
Project in Lithuania in 1997.  Rasa participated in the exhibition with
the help of her husband and fellow artist Sigitas Staniuniene, despite
having just emerged from being in a coma for 8-9 months after falling
from a four story building while working on an installation project in
Toronto.  She has continued to work despite limited mobility in a
country that does not provide much assistance for the disabled, recently
exhibiting at the Academia Gallery in Vilnius, Lithuania.  Through the
support of Rasa's family and Louise's commitment to showing Rasa's
playful abstract drawings and paintings in Chicago, Artemisia Gallery is
pleased to be presenting this milestone exhibition, 'In Space'.

Gallery C: Alice Shaddle
Former Artemisia Gallery Member Alice Shaddle has worked in painting,
sculpture, collage, and installation in her career as a Chicago artist
which spans almost a half-century.   Her fantastic organic expressions
of artistic freedom have been exhibited at The Art Institute of Chicago
and The Museum of Contemporary Art, are in the permanent collection of
the Smithsonian Institute, and have been reviewed in Artforum and Art in
America.  On view is a series of collages.

Gallery D: Helidon Gjergji
Helidon Gjergji was born and raised in Albania, the most aggressive
'Communist' dictatorship in the Eastern block, he then lived in Italy
for many years, and now in the United States.  Experiencing living in
these disparate social and economic systems has influenced his work both
in content and form.  His current work combines artifacts of the old and
new, including media artifacts, merging 'Propaganda' Art and 'Pop' Art
into what he calls 'Prop' Art.

Finally - after two years of building a web site to showcase the art of
other artists in our Screen Print Workshop for Artists - I am showing off my
own work. Enjoy.


YES! Wondering when or whether you would ever hear about ART-ACT again?
We are back and continuing to build steadily. This is the time that the
boys in the retail Internet business are catching hell. The time of the easy
venture capital is over. While others stress cutting-edge technology our web
site is building flavor. Our site is seeking to do the slow hard work of
building a community around the content of ART-ACT and our Screen Print
Workshop for Artists. Our site does not depend on a well paid systems
administrator and a team of HTML coders or site designers. Our site is
powered by a lonely artist from a struggling community art center who has
never been paid well (more often - not at all) and still stays up late at
night working because that, too often, is what it takes to survive in the
community arts.

We are here to stay! Artists - your art will have an effect on our site. I
have made fliers from the art from ART-ACT promoting our site and
your art locally, asking people to visit the site and to submit their own
personal stories for racism. The history of our "Art of the T-shirt"
exhibits demonstrate our commitment to community
art and the artist.

A second iron in the fire is to seek out the support of
teachers to help build a curriculum for high school and college classes
to use this art to inspire the discussion of racism and issues of diversity.
If you are a teacher and would like to work on this project or know another
teacher who would - do not hesitate. E-mail me. Lets get it on! More on
this as the year progresses. We know your art is valuable.

So what is our big plan for 2001? Steadily to build our networking by
volunteers to promote our web site. This is one idea we are putting into

Want to help - just e-mail me with volunteer in the subject line or visit
this link....

Over the course of the next month or two I will be adding my work to a
segment of this site. I invite those who are curious to take a look. Because
I wear many hats steady, not speedy, growth is promised.

* Social Software - Soziale Software

Thursday, 8 February 2001, 14.30 - 18.00 h

The development of computer hardware and the global network infrastructure
provide ever-extending possibilities for social and creative interactions
between people. These possibilities have to be designed and coded in
software in order to be realised. Thus, software becomes a crucial
for the emergence of the Information Society and its social and cultural

To what degree does software determine the structures and potentials of
technically based communities? What will be the social design of future
political processes? Will political representation become as virtual as
online voting? How can software be used not only to support, but also to
catalyse social processes? How do social standards of commitment and
responsibility work in an environment where anonymity and fluid identities
are a given?

* Artistic Software - Software Art

Thursday, 8 February 2001, 20.30 h

The transmediale.01 has organised the first award competition that
an art prize for software. This competition recognises the artistic work
done by hybrid artist-programmers who are neither 'interactive media
artists' or 'net artists', but whose aesthetic material is code and whose
expressive form is software programming.

The definition that has been suggested for Software Art is that it
incorporates projects in which self-written algorithmic computer software
(stand alone programmes or script-based applications) is not merely a
functional tool, but is itself an artistic creation.

Through the competition and this panel discussion, the transmediale hopes
to stimulate the debate about software as a motor of cultural innovation.
Does software serve a merely instrumental function, or does it offer new
and creative cultural perspectives? Is computer code a genuine artistic
material like paint or digital images?

4 - 11 February 2001

The transmediale.01 includes a two-day conference about the DIY theme,
focusing on Software (8 February) and Net-based Forms of Distribution and

* New Forms of Distribution - Sharing and Dealing Artistic Products on the Net

Friday, 9.2.2001, 14.30 - 18.00 h

The Internet has opened up diverse possibilities of collaboratively making
artistic products and presenting them to a global audience. The
unrestricted access to free software on the net encourages process-oriented
production and challenges users to conduct their own artistic experiments
on their home computers. Growing individual skills in handling new media
are a direct consequence of this development.

At the same time, however, ever-more powerful computers, faster
transmission rates and new data-compression techniques are increasingly
transforming the net into an entertainment medium that, aside from the
active procedures of searching for and downloading files, allows its users
to be passive listeners and viewers. While the peer-to-peer swapping of
digital data seems ideal from the viewpoint of the home computer, the 'old'
distribution industry denounces the practice as one it would like to see

Autonomous Internet marketplaces and formats that might be able to replace
the classical forms of trading are proving slow to emerge. Just as the
e-book has so far failed to succeed, micropayment on the net remains a

For artists, the ability to distribute a piece of work - whether music,
video or a flash animation - over Internet platforms primarily means
direct, fast access to a target group. To date, however, there is a lack of
instruments and models that would enable artists to operate independently
of the traditional value chains.

The panel is made up of artists and net distributors who present their work
and discuss the following questions:
What does current Internet-based art production look like? What new
artistic formats have emerged and which of these are appropriate for net
distribution? Do niches or functioning models exist that make the
production of artistic content profitable? Who are the actual 'users' or,
more accurately, 'benificiaries' of such models - i.e. who earns money
through the content produced by the creative workers? How significant are
notions like 'author' and 'copyright' in the digital age? Do new
distribution channels automatically stimulate cultural diversity?

* Net-based Participation - Media Competence and Models of Interaction on
the Net

Friday, 9.2.2001, 20.30 - 22.30 h

The Internet is increasingly viewed as a participatory medium in which
interactivity is limited not only to 'click and buy' but also functions as
a production system. On the one hand there is a constant growth in new
platforms for actual interactive models, on the other hand the Net is also
increasingly seen, particularly in connection with greater bandwidths, as a
passive entertainment medium that offers highly compressed film streams.
There are signs that in the future the functionality of the Internet will
continue to split up and that an abundance of hybrid formats will develop.

The concept of the Internet as a production system is in particular being
pushed forward by creative people and artists who no longer use the Net
just as a distribution medium but, in addition, employ internet technology
to generate artistic products on the basis of collaboration, participation
and global access.
With many of these projects the basic idea is both the stimulation of the
natural creativity of the individual and a political objective which relies
on the idea of the Internet as a democratic medium.
The call to DIY that these projects imply increasingly presupposes the
user's engagement with the new technology, requires his involvement and
fosters media competence in a very direct way.

In this panel artistic projects and interaction models are presented that
extend beyond the usual degree of production in virtual space and actually
intervene in real structures such as the urban realm or social and economic
processes. The following questions will be addressed: What does
interactivity mean in contrast to the concepts interpassivity and
participation? Is the idea of the Internet as a medium that promotes
democracy an illusion or reality? To what extent can artistic interventions
also be starting points for a longer-term change in the view of society?

Neoists writing can be easily distinguished from Non-Neoist writing by
turning an arbitrary number of words into their logical opposites. The text
is a Neoist text only when the second text still tells the same as the first

évolutions récentes», une analyse de Gérard Régimbeau

Internet a provoqué, dans le champ de l'art contemporain, des changements
qui touchent à la médiation de l'information. Il a permis la naissance de la
revue électronique, nouvelle forme éditoriale, tout en imposant une phase
d'adaptation aux revues imprimées. Après un bref retour historiographique
sur l'étude des revues d'art contemporain, cet article s'attache à montrer
les diverses réactions des revues «classiques» face au défi de la diffusion
en ligne; à distinguer les différents projets de revues électroniques, des
plus anciennes aux plus récentes; puis à observer les maquettes des
différents sites. L'ensemble de ces repères permettant d'approcher
quelques-unes des fonctions médiatrices de la revue dans des réseaux où
l'art et l'édition croisent maintenant le réseau Internet.

«L'art considéré ici sera donc, avant tout, méthode et langage - «actes de

analytiques du langage, pères de la linguistique performative : «Quand dire
c'est faire». [...] Avatar d'avatar ou avatar retourné (dans l'art
contemporain, on retourne le tableau en installation), bâti à la fois sur le
langage ésotérico-informatique (intralinguistique) et le langage performatif
inhérent à l'art du Net». Les oeuvres des artistes Mouchette, Olga
Kisseleva, Mark Amerika et Annie Abrahams sont étudiées dans cet article.

entretien avec Peter Lunenfeld», réalisé par Geert Lovink

Peter Lunenfeld enseigne dans le cadre du programme Media Design au Art
Center College of Design (Pasadena, Californie). Il vit à Los Angeles et il
a publié Snap to Grid: A User's Guide to Digital Arts, Media, and Culture
(MIT Press, 2000). En tant que critique actuel de la culture, il
contextualise le milieu quelque peu isolé et autoréférentiel lié aux projets
en nouveaux médias. Plutôt que de réduire le démo à une tentative inachevée,
il avance que «le démo est devenu une part essentielle de la pratique
artistique». «Je suis étonné de constater que nous sommes tous forcément
engagés dans des références d'une étendue auparavant inimaginable, qu'entre
autres, ce que nous attendons de la nouvelle génération d'applications
numériques ce sont, précisément, les outils et les méthodes pour nous aider
à faire du sens à partir de ce vaste flux d'informations.»

Subject: india2001: Listing of a wide-range of Indian sites

Greetings from
We thought of a different way of marking our entry into the year 2001., a voluntary venture that is trying to focus on how
IT and the Internet can be -- and is being -- made relevant to the
commonman (and woman) in South Asia.
Towards this end, we have compiled a list of 2001 Indian (and a few
from the wider South Asian region) web sites. If you'd like a free copy
of this, just send an email to with
i2001LISTREQUEST as the subjectline. Also mention your name and address
in the body of the message. This listing is in HTML format and is
approx 300KB in size.
It lists sites from the field of academia (including asian studies -
careers - colleges - colleges - education - research - social service -
universities); agriculture; alternative-india; art & culture;
automobiles; banks; books; business (including industry, stocks,
infrastructure, trade, exports); communications (including in regional
languages); consulates of India abroad; cooking and food; e-commerce;
entertainment; expatriate indians; government (specific links to
various departments); health (advice, aids, ayurveda, blood banks
online, cancer, child development, corporates in health, disabilities,
doctors, elderly, facilities, health care, homeopathy, hospitals,
journals, leprosy, libraries online, medicine, pharmaceuticals, public
health, resources, tibetan medicine, yoga...); infrastructure;
IT-India's infotech industry;  job-sites; law-related links;
matrimonials; media; music; neighbours of India; news-sites;
newspapers; portals (on a range of themes); regional sites;
religion-based sites; sports; tourism & travel; women and youth sites.
Coincidentally, this listing has 2001 sites included.
We plan to also build a list of other sites from other South Asia
countries, and seek partners for this venture. If you would like us to
include sites which you feel should be in such a listing, please send
us details of the same.
Regards and best wishes, Frederick
