Upgrade Available: Live and Illustrated—Julia Christensen in Conversation with Aria Dean and Jessica Gambling

April 22, 2020 @ 4—5pm — Zoom

Join Art + Technology Lab grant recipient Julia Christensen for a multimedia presentation of her project and forthcoming book, Upgrade Available (Dancing Foxes Press, Spring 2020), about how “upgrade culture” fundamentally impacts our experience of time. Christensen’s artwork and writing examine how the perceived notion that one must constantly upgrade electronics and media impacts our sense of time on many levels––in our daily lives, over our lifetimes, as institutional time, and finally, in our perception of a space-time continuum. The live event will include conversations between Christensen and selected artists, curators, and writers about her ongoing Art + Technology Lab project. The conversation will be illustrated with images, videos, and writings from the project and book. Panelists include Aria Dean, editor and curator at Rhizome and Jessica Gambling, LACMA archivist.


Participants will have an opportunity to participate during the conversation’s question and answer period via Zoom’s Q&A function.
