SPEED SHOW vol.4: Super Niche last Wednesday in Chinatown NYC was awesome! ’90 Bowery Internet Cafe’ provides approx. 200 state of the art gaming PCs on a large basement floor. On 24 of them there was great internet art on display for one night. Thx to all artists, to ’90 Bowery Internet Cafe’ and to the crowd for showing up!  It was fun!

SPEED SHOW vol.4: Super Niche
Wednesday, 27th Oct. 2010,  8-11 PM
90 Bowery Internet Cafe, NY 10013

Has (inter)net.art left its niche? Or is it clustered into zillions of tiny net niches splintered into numerous subtopics? The Super Niche could be a very big niche, a surf-club which is almost mainstream (?) or a sub cell of a extreme small niche of  a 1-visitor ever page in deprecated HTML oblivion. Learning from evolution the beauty lies in the absurdity of super niche solutions, of visual workarounds in every day life net culture. It’s time to create more niches! It’s time to superfy!

I am pleased to announce the next SPEED SHOW of the ongoing series upcoming week in New York City! It was much fun putting together such a great selection of Internet / browser based art from a wide range of awesome artists of different net-genres and net-’decades’. :-) I am expecting around half of the artists to be present and I hope all you people in greater NY will come and see! Credits to EYEBEAM for having me as a resident in NY! Check also SPEED SHOW Traces which took place 10 days ago in Bucharest and was organized and curated by Silvia Saitoc & Matei Sâmihăian! Great job guys! (pics)

On my way to the Netherlands last Wednesday (for the ‘Shadow Dance‘ group show in Amersfoort) I decided in the last minute  to set up a SPEED SHOW on short notice in Amsterdam for the following day. At the end of the 6h train ride I had all artist emailed and confirmed, speed curated!

Constant Dullaart picked a great Internet-shop remotely via Google Streetview (oh man, we need that in DE finally too!), Peter Luining checked it out and fetched me a phone number. Thx for support! I called the guy the night before and all was set. Since the shop doesn’t sell anything else than voice and internet we had to bring our own drinks. :-)  (which he was cool with. Is that possible in NYC?!?)

Although the show was anounnced only one night in advance we had a fine crowd of visitors and lot’s of rain (which made everyone look at the art ;-). Thx to all for showing up on short notice! Thx to the artists! Thx to the ‘A.Internetcafe’-team!
