Evan Roth // Intellectual Property Donor Opening Reception
|Date:||January 24, 2015, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM|
|Venue:||Ulrich Museum of Art - 1845 Fairmont St Wichita KS|
|Sponsor:||Ulrich Museum of Art|
The Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University will open the Evan Roth//Intellectual Property Donor exhibition January 24. This show occupies an irregular zone at the intersection of free culture and popular culture, where viral media meets art, and graffiti connects with technology. "The Ulrich is excited to present such a timely and relevant exhibition to our community," said Bob Workman, director of the Ulrich Museum. Evan Roth’s works are playful but ask serious questions. Roth walks a line between misuse through hacking and empowerment of activists through the use of technology." This nationally touring exhibition highlights Evan Roth’s recent works from 2009 to 2014, including a series of sculptures made from motion tracked graffiti data, an interactive installation that invites visitors to create their own pirate TED talks, and 1,700 smartphone screen-sized ink prints of the gestures required to beat the 300 levels of the popular video game "Angry Birds." Evan Roth explores intellectual property rights-a complex issue further complicated within the digital realm, as well as the power of ownership." Based in Paris, Evan Roth received his MFA from Parsons the New School for Design. Roth co-founded the Graffiti Research Lab in 2005, and the Free Art and Technology Lab, an arts and free culture collective, in 2007. Evan Roth//Intellectual Property Donor on view through April 12.
