New York City, April 1999
ECHO (New York City's oldest and best-established online service and dysfunctional family) and its Art Conference are proud to announce the next in its series of exhibitions at the "Echo Galleries" with a group show entitled "THE SPRING FEVER SHOW."
Since October 1997, the Art Conference has sponsored a series of highly successful group exhibitions, including Percolating Inside & Offline, Echoed Images, the Self-Portrait Show, Abstract Echoids, and the Coffin Show. Following in this tradition, this show features the work of some of Echo's most prominent and multi-talented members. Sixteen Echoids will present their odes to spring.
The ART Conference is about art, and other forms of self-conscious, intentional, rarefied, or mass cultural production. It's for artists, critics, professionals, amateurs, voyeurs, and people who think they don't know anything about it. Sample discussions include: "Your Own Movement, Your Own Manifesto"; "Technology, New Media & The Arts"; "Artists: What are you working on right now?"; and "Why don't I go to galleries anymore?"
It is hosted by Bill Gibbons, M.R. Petit, and Kathy Schnapper. Gibbons (aka wastrel) is a painter and proprietor of his own mural house. Petit (aka merpy) is a multi-media artist and is a visiting professor at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU. Schnapper (aka arsinoe) is an art historian. She is Director of the Robeson Art Gallery at Rutgers University, Newark.
Please join us for the Opening Reception on Thursday, May 13th 1999 from 6-8 pm at the Echo Communications Offices, 179 Franklin Street, 4th floor New York, NY 10013. For more information: (212) 292-0910 or http://www.echonyc.com/~artconf. - end -
