STREAM is an exhibition that will surprise New York audiences, making us reconsider, rethink and re-contextualize global art making and information technology. The selected group of Portuguese artists stretch and stream their particular lenses into outposts of innovative art, be it where their work is made, in New York or elsewhere.
STREAM’s media-based works require a public art space where the art is available in a one-to-one temporal engagement, a viewing that takes place in the context of continual coming and goings, with traffic and a constant flow of visitors – different from a cinema or a concert hall. STREAM is presented as an irregular flux, which overflows its margins and continuously re-establishes its limits.
All are time-based works, moving in various directions, streaming from the artist’s studio to a public space: artworks that fetishize digital media, use video and audio narratives, and display performative aspects inherent to technology.
