> DESCRIPTION

FAIR USE is a multimedia exhibition that sets out to foster critical discussion about intellectual property rights. The exhibition looks at the how contemporary artists and designers challenge proprietary cultural material through its appropriation, reconfiguration and redistribution. Alternately, the recent strategies of open-source and copyleft licensing serve to encourage collaboration and innovation through the free sharing of information. Together these two paradigms form a critique of the conventional modes of distribution and ownership to imagine a more fluid and inclusive economy of cultural meanings. Participating artists include:  Sze Lin Pang, Line Langballe and Christina Okai Mejborn of Totem Collective,Michel Gies, Ethan Huber, Mark Holmes, Tyler Avery, Joe Willis, Guy Ben-Ner, Pratchaya Phintong, Seth Price, Bea Correa, Kay Rosen, Salter/Snowden and Siebren Versteeg. Curated by Brandon Alvendia.
