ARTEMISIA GALLERY LAUNCHES " MEME ME: IDENTITY IN THE REPLICATION AGE
“Meme Me: Identity in the Replication Age”, is a recent project curated and organized by Artemisia Gallery (Chicago) in conjunction with the International Symposium for the Electronic Arts (ISEA'97). The project, which involved two fluxus-inspired performance evenings and an exhibition of electronic-based installations by ISEA'97 artists culminated in an on-line web project located at:
Although international in scope, the majority of the artists participating in “Meme Me” are from the United States and Canada. ada'web (nyc), Interaccess (Toronto, Canada) and StudioXX (Montreal, Canada) are some of the digital galleries that assisted the gallery in its curatorial process. Works by Canadian web artists Greg Garvey, Petra Mueller, Jeanette Lambert and Raquel Rivera are featured, as well as web art projects by Keith Tyson (England), and American artists Jenny Holzer, Katherine Isbister, Nino Rodriguez and Rose Stasuk.
Artemisia is a Chicago-based, internationally recognized, not-for-profit cooperative gallery founded in 1972 which seeks to emphasize the role of women in the arts. Artemisia provides educational services to the art community and supports emerging and alternative artists. Recently, Artemisia began a technological initiative with the creation of Artemisiaweb, which has allowed the gallery to expand programming into virtual space via curated on-line exhibitions. Artemisia's curatorial committee views the world wide web as a site for cross-border information exchange, display, and art-making activities.
