The Facebook Show:

Profile Portraits from Facebook  

 

The end of the last century was accelerated by broad advancements into the science and the art of intrusion.  Now, the 21st century allows each and every one of us to carry the information age in our pockets and purses. We can talk, text, tweet, email, view the world on the net, and record and send out our "life" images from anywhere and everywhere we happen to be.

At the same moment, there is a camera watching us at every street corner. This isn't big brother, so much as Andy Warhol’s 15 minutes defining us all as self-proclaimed celebrities in our own right. We neither object nor hide from our increased visibility. We celebrate and embrace it, and buy into every new advance and gadget. All of this with the belief that by expanding the surveillance and instant interactions of our daily lives, we have each become integral to the entire global matrix of existence and meaning.

We have become our own reality show.

The beneficial catastrophe of Facebook has been a global connecting of the art world. Artist, critic, curator, gallerist can now communicate quickly and without tedious elaboration. Yes, no, maybe... And, no matter what their chosen genre or acquired stature, we can all simply be friends. And among such friends, it's essential that art be seen to exist.

No wonder 21st Century artists are embracing this quick path out from their previous roles of unlinked solitude and uninformed discovery. The digital age is quickly modifying contemporary art's course through the celebrated chatter of the web, and beyond. It is in this cyber network that the artist creates a sort of working studio, presenting one's artwork to an ever-growing audience. At last count, topping off at 500 million.

Facebook no longer restricts the choice of viewer or the artist’s view. For today's artist, it erases all topicality by invalidating the need for actual presence: that imposition of place and of working within specific trends and local tastes. Facebook announces something far more varied, and above all far more free than previously imagined. It offers us a plural and complete panorama. It allows the potential for everyone to see how, and to what extent, art can be both shaped and redefined by technology.
