26. 10. 2021 17:00 – 18:00
House of Arts
Joseph Nechvatal is an American artist currently living in Paris. His post-conceptual art practice engages in the fragile wedding of image production and image resistance. Through his version of an art-of-noise, he brings a subversive reading of society through his use of custom a-life computational viruses. His computer-robotic assisted paintings and software animations are shown regularly. Dr. Nechvatal earned his Ph.D. in the philosophy of art and new technology at The Centre for Advanced Inquiry in the Interactive Arts (CAiiA) at the University of Wales, Newport. From 1999 to 2014 he taught in the mfa graduate department at the School of Visual Arts. His book of essays Towards an Immersive Intelligence: Essays on the Work of Art in the Age of Computer Technology and Virtual Reality (1993-2006) was published by Edgewise Press in 2009. In 2011 his book Immersion Into Noise was published by the University of Michigan Library’s Scholarly Publishing Office in conjunction with the Open Humanities Press. He has also already published two books with Punctum Press: Minóy (ed.) (2014) & Destroyer of Naivetés (2015). In 2021 a cassette of his Selected Sound Works (1981-2021) was published by Pentiments experimental music and sound art label.
At Immersion Into Noise Vasulka Kitchen Brno, Joseph Nechvatal will present a version of his art-of-noise art practice that uses custom virus-modeled a-life computational viruses. He will present an historic overview of his computer-robotic assisted paintings and software animations, but also focus on his latest art exhibition Orlando et la tempête (Orlando and the Tempest) held at Galerie Richard in Paris in the Fall of 2020. He will also discuss his book Immersion Into Noise and play audio tracks of his noise music from his recently released Pentiments retrospective project Selected Sound Works (1981-2021).
