New Show at New Museum


Opening tonight at the New Museum's Zenith Media Lounge in Manhattan: "Open_Source_Art_Hack," which is open to the public from May 3- June 30.

Not just a static museum show, the programming features tours by the Surveillance Camera Players; a performance by Critical Art Ensemble; an installation by Knowbotic Research; a Free Radio Linux broadcast by r a d i o q u a l i a; and much, much more. The extravaganza was put together by Steve Dietz, Curator of New Media, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, and Jenny Marketou, a New York-based artist, in collaboration with Anne Barlow, Curator of Education and Media Programs, New Museum of Contemporary Art.
