*About /Shu Lea Cheang & Mark Amerika/*
------------------------------------------------------------------------

This exhibition by Mark Amerika <http://markamerika.com/> (US) and Shu 
Lea Cheang <http://www.mauvaiscontact.info/> (TW/US/FR) at Furtherfield 
Gallery marks a significant moment for contemporary art. Amerika and 
Cheang are both 'net native' artists. They share many of the obsessions 
of the growing multitude of artists who have grown up with the net since 
the early 1990s.

They are also big "names"- internationally established artists who 
regularly show their work, to critical acclaim, at contemporary art 
galleries around the world. They have crossed over into the mainstream 
art world whilst maintaining a critical edge.

Amerika <http://markamerika.com/> is a media artist, novelist, and 
theorist of Internet and remix culture, named a "Time Magazine 100 
Innovator" in their continuing series of features on the most 
influential artists, scientists, entertainers and philosophers into the 
21st Century.

Cheang <http://www.mauvaiscontact.info/> is a multi-media artist who 
works with net-based installation, social interface and film production. 
She has been a member of the Paper Tiger Television collective since 
1981 and 'Brandon' about gender fusion and the techno-body was early web 
based artwork commissioned by the Guggenheim Museum (NY).

Both artists continue to shape and be shaped by contemporary networked 
media art cultures of remix, glitch, social and environmental encounters.
