Event Description
This summer, Eric Dobbins, Lee Piechocki, Jason Barr and Kelly John Clark-the four artists at Wonder Fair Art Gallery, Shoppe, and Studio-have transformed the Spencer’s Museum Shop into an imaginative “one-plex cinema theatre”. Presenting a creative play on the “You Tube” culture, in which users from around the world create and share videos, the Wonder Fair team offers its own interpretation through a four-part series of events. Each event shares four common themes: curating, re-working, critiquing, and advertising. In each episode of the series, one artist curates by selecting an existing You Tube video; one artist re-works through the creation of a copy-cat video-in line with the video sharing community; one artist offers a video critique of the original video; and finally, one artist creates a video advertisement. The four artists rotate through each of the roles, performing each task once throughout the project. Each episode debuts with a video premiere featuring the artists and enlivened by time-honored movie-theater spectacle-along with the requisite popcorn, candy and soda pop..
