SPEED SHOW vol.4: ’Super Niche’

27th of October, 2010, New York, USA
Curated by Aram Bartholl

———————————————————-

I am pleased to announce the next SPEED SHOW of the ongoing series upcoming week in New York City! It was much fun putting together such a great selection of Internet / browser based art from a wide range of awesome artists of different net-genres and net-’decades’. :-) I am expecting around half of the artists to be present and I hope all you people in greater NY will come and see! Credits to EYEBEAM for having me as a resident in NY! Check also SPEED SHOW Traces which took place 10 days ago in Bucharest and was organized and curated by Silvia Saitoc & Matei Sâmihăian! Great job guys! (pics)

Has (inter)net.art left its niche? Or is it clustered into zillions of tiny net niches splintered into numerous subtopics? The Super Niche could be a very big niche, a surf-club which is almost mainstream (?) or a sub cell of a extreme small niche of  a 1-visitor ever page in deprecated HTML oblivion. Learning from evolution the beauty lies in the absurdity of super niche solutions, of visual workarounds in every day life net culture. It’s time to create more niches! It’s time to superfy!
