The exhibition THREE JUNCTURES OF REMIX features the art of Mark Amerika &
Chad Mossholder, Arcangel Constantini, Giselle Beiguelman, and Elisa
Kreisinger, a group of international artists who have explored and reflect
on the implications of the creative act of remixing since the concept
became popular beginning in the nineties. The art works crossover and
explore three junctures (moments of production) of remix: the
pre-digital/analog; the digital; and the post-digital which developed in
chronological order, but after their initial manifestation, became
intertwined and currently are often reintroduced in conjunction to inform
the aesthetics of remix as a creative act in art practice. The exhibition
is curated to reflect on how computing has enabled people to recombine
pre-existing material with unprecedented efficiency that is relatively
affordable just about everywhere information-based technology is widely
used. This has affected how local and global communities view their
cultural production, from politics to the arts.



*Eduardo Navas* researches the crossover of art and media in culture. His
production includes art & media projects, critical texts, and curatorial
projects. He has presented and lectured about his work internationally.
Navas researches and teaches in the School of Visual Arts at The
Pennsylvania State University, PA. He also lectures in the program of
Culture and Media at Eugene Lang College, and MA Media Studies at The New
School for Public Engagement, NY. Navas is a 2010-12 Post Doctoral Fellow
in the Department of Information Science and Media Studies at the
University of Bergen, Norway, where he remains an affiliated researcher. He
received his Ph.D. from the Program of Art History, Theory, and Criticism
in The Department of Visual Arts at the University of California, San
Diego. He is the author of *Remix Theory: The Aesthetics of Sampling*.



*Mark Amerika* is an internationally renowned “remix artist” who not only
reconfigures existing cultural content into new forms of art, but also
mashes up the mainstream media forms and genres that most commercial
artists work in. His artwork includes published cult novels, pioneering
works of Internet art, digital video, surround sound museum installations,
large scale video projections in public spaces, live audio-visual/VJ
performance, and most recently, a series of feature-length “foreign films”
shot with different image capturing devices in various locations throughout
the world. He is currently a Professor of Art and Art History at the
University of Colorado at Boulder and Principal Research Fellow in the
Faculty of Humanities and Social Science at La Trobe University. His
Internet art can found at his website, markamerika.com



*Chad Mossholder *is a sound artist working in art installations, film,
music and video games.  His critically acclaimed and experimental
electronic music project " Twine " has performed all over the world and has
released six full-length albums as well as numerous mini-albums, and EP’s
on such labels as Hefty Records (Chicago), Bip-Hop Records (Marseille
France) and Ghostly Records (Ann Arbor). His live audio/visual performances
have attracted audiences in Europe, Japan and North America. Chad's sound
collaborations with artist Mark Amerika, including *Filmtext, Codework *and
*Immobilite*, have been exhibited in international museums, galleries and
festivals.



*Giselle Beiguelman* is a new media artist, curator and researcher. She was
Artistic Director of Sergio Motta Institute (2008-2011), and was also
Professor of the Graduate Program in Communication and Semiotics of PUC-SP
(São Paulo, 2001-2011). Beiguelman teaches Art History and Design at the
Architecture and Urbanism Faculty of the University of São Paulo. She was

Nokia Trends (2007 and 2008), and the Brazilian participation in ISEA Ruhr
(2009) among many others.



*Arcángel Constantini *produces work of a marked ludic-experimental nature,
strongly influenced by the fortuitous and chaotic processes of the city as
reflected in the systematic use of glitch aesthetics. His work and artistic
practice explore the dynamics of visual and sound works, low-tech
installations, propaganda action, visual/sound performance, hardware
hacking, physical computing, installation, sound art and net art. As an
independent curator, he has been developing the program of Cyberlounge,
Museo Rufino Tamayo since 2001, and was part of the curatorial team for
Transitio Mx electronic art festival. He is a member of dorkbot Mexico D.F.
council. He has received several awards, among them the Prize for Best
Multimedia Work at Vidarte, Video and Electronic Arts Festival, CENART
(Mexico City, 1999), and received first prize for Atari-noise at
Interference Festival France 2000. In 2002 Constantini received the
Rockefeller/ MacArthur grant for new media.



*Elisa Kreisinger* is a video artist based in New York City. Her latest
work includes remixing Mad Men, Sex & the City, and the Real Housewives
into feminists and lesbians. Her work has been featured in galleries and
festivals throughout the US and Europe including Museum of Film and TV
(Berlin), MIP Cube (France) and SxSW.  A prominent voice in the remix and
online video community since 2006, Elisa speaks on university campuses,
including USC, MIT and Harvard, and at industry events throughout the
world. Her success engaging female audiences online has led to
collaborations with NBC, Paramount Pictures, Art 21, Eileen Fisher, Women
Make Movies and the Women’s Media Center. An advocate and activist, Elisa
works with Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society, American
University’s Center for Social Media and the Electronic Frontier Foundation
to continue to pave the way for a remix-friendly web that acknowledges
creators’ rights under US Copyright Law’s Fair Use provision.
