Or, if you’re closer to Carson City this Thursday, Joseph Delappe is giving a talk sponsored by CCAI (press release info below):
“Nevada Neighbors,” Capital City Arts Initiative’s ongoing series of presentations on contemporary art, returns in this month with “Electronic Vistas” a talk by artist Joseph DeLappe on Thursday, February 25 at the Carson City Library at 7:00 p.m. Preceding his talk, there will be an informal reception for Mr. DeLappe at the library at 6:15 p.m.
Joseph DeLappe is an Associate Professor of the Department of Art at the University of Nevada where he directs the Digital Media program. Working with electronic and New Media since 1983, his work in online gaming performance and electro-mechanical installation have been shown throughout the United States and abroad, including exhibitions and performances in Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Peru, China and the Netherlands.
Mr. DeLappe created and directs the “iraqimemorial.org” project, an ongoing call for artists to create proposals for memorials to the many thousands of civilian casualties in the Iraq war. (“iraqimemorial.org” is presently being featured at the Sheppard Fine Arts Gallery at UNR through March 12, 2010.)
Mr. DeLappe will present documentation of his recent projects and discuss them as durational works of experimental online and real world performance.
