ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE

Originally published at Art Fag City.

 

When we ask ourselves, What is missing from today’s art criticism? the answer is pretty obvious: visuals. With that in mind, we’d like to tell you about our latest project.

ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE isn’t just an internet art replay talk show, co-hosted by Roger White and Dushko Petrovich, two of America’s leading art commentators. It’s much, much more.                                                

ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE

ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE transports the at-home audience into the gallery.      ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE replays the art, gets inside it, shows how it works in real time.                                                                                                                                           ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE makes the scene.

Touch

The show is going to have Live Analytics: Real-time attendance numbers, up-to-the-minute sales figures, viewer opinion of reviewer opinion—all the latest artwork experience statistics. Plus, exclusive 24-hr cams from the artist’s studios, with patented inspra-red studio videography, and exclusive touch-screen visitation options for our Platinum Members.

ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE is going to e-volutionize the way we do art criticism.

Hughye1

Pierre Huyghe, “Aquarium Project”, 2010, at Marian Goodman Gallery via Critiscope.

The centerpiece of the show is a segment called View Review, where we look at what’s happening in galleries using a technology we call Digi-Graphic Criticoscopography.

Koh

Terence Koh, “nothingtodo”, 2010, at Mary Boone via Critiscope.

This is a combination of CGI, motion capture, HD, TiVo, Flash, and HTML, and it’s completely new. We’re very proud of it.  It’s a proprietary technique, so we can’t tell you here how we do it, but the attached screen grabs will more than adequately demonstrate the Critiscope Experience.

Benglo

Lynda Benglis, “Phantom”, 1971, and George Condo, “Mental States” at the New Museum via Critiscope.

If you want to follow two events from the same institution at once, you can utilize our Institutionalization Mode. Why not double-screen George Condo and Lynda Benglis at the New Museum? Words cannot describe the experience!

Paywall

Oh, and it’s going to have paywalls, and firewalls, and virtual-VIP sections.

It’s going to be like dying and coming back to life inside an android with a thousand eyeballs. Let us know if you’d like to invest.
