NEW YORK.- The New Museum of Contemporary Art presents About Transmission II: Airborne, on view through June 4, 2005. As commercial uses for wireless technologies multiply, artists are simultaneously considering the same media for creative expression. Airborne, the second in the New Museum's Transmission series, profiles exciting new projects by New York-based artists investigating the aesthetic, sonic, and socio-political aspects of the wireless spectrum.
Artists in the exhibition were selected from an open call for submissions and include 31 Down, Mendi+Keith Obadike, LoVid (Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus), Melissa Dubbin and Aaron Davidson, neuroTransmitter, Paul Davies, and Tarikh Korula. Each artist's project illuminates the otherwise fleeting and invisible airwaves that surround us through conceptual projects, networked installations, live streams and audio-visual works.
