Brad Borevitz is an artist whose work focuses on language, politics and software. He writes that the intention of his practice is, "to press the artifacts and techniques of computation's ubiquity towards a connection with the social and intellectual circumstances of their context." To this end, he has produced websites, videos, software applications, and robots, all of which have at their core a deep commitment to understanding the political, philosophical and cultural implications of computer technology. He is currently a participant in the Whitney Museum of American Art's Independent Study Program. He holds an MFA in Visual Arts from the University of California San Diego. (

Thinkings: How computers change the way we see by altering the way we think.

Tue Oct 19, 2010 00:00 - Mon Sep 27, 2010

Southern Exposure will be hosting a three-part discussion series called Thinkings: How computers change the way we see by altering the way we think by Brad Borevitz.

Tuesday, September 21, 7:00 - 9:00pm
Tuesday, October 19, 7:00 - 9:00pm
Tuesday, November 16, 7:00 - 9:00pm

Over the course of three evenings, participants will work through concepts that are crucial to understanding the computer's significance: the automation of variation, the automation of the sublime, and the automation of the image itself. The book produced for the series is meant to focus attention on these visual aspects of computational culture and to stimulate discussion.

Purchase of the book is required ($35.00, scholarships available based on need). Participants are encouraged to attend all three events. There is limited space, so sign up in advance by calling Southern Exposure at 415-863-2141.

Questions for artists

Wed Feb 20, 2008 00:00 - Wed Feb 20, 2008

The submission of the artist to questioning is an unavoidable aspect of art practice. The interview, the artist talk, the grant application, the studio visit, the critique, etc. -- all occasions for interrogation. It seems that the very identity of the artist is constructed inside of that interrogative process.

The new website by Brad Borevitz, "Questions for Artists" invites artists to ask back: "... let's make a list of those questions and analyze, tag, rank, and comment on them. Let's make a list of questions that we would want to be asked. Let's ask questions about questions." the site implores.

Post your favorite or least favorite questions. Make that snarky retort. Give it just one star because it sucks. A deconstructive critique? Go ahead and Laugh! Etc.
