Immobilité on a Tear (UPDATED)

Immobilité in all of its iterations is indeed on another tear.

Last year it appeared in solo shows at the Chelsea Art Museum in New York and The National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens as well as many public or urban screen settings throughout the world including Milan (check out an excerpted clip of the event here), Melbourne, Bucharest (YouTube excerpt here), Bangkok, and Seoul. It played in seventeen cities in the UK via the BBC Big Screens.

The latter half of this year is a busy time for the work as well. Soon I will send out a press release for its five month run in the Fuse Box at the Denver Art Museum (Colorado peeps mark your calendars: I'll be delivering the Logan Lecture at the museum on October 20th). It will also premiere in Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte, Brazil, in November/December as part of Arte.Mov (I'll be in both cities for the openings as a follow-up to my presenting it in Salvador, Brazil, this past July). The remixes are also getting major play again this fall including the current exhibition at Google's Headquarters in New York, inclusion in The 2010 01SJ Biennial in San Jose, an upcoming four week appearance at The Big Screen Project in New York, and the Tina B. : The Prague Contemporary Art Festival. The initial remix that premiered at the Tate Media site, played at the Media Facades festival in Berlin this month as well.

I think I'm forgetting a couple of others but you get the picture: it's been busy! And I am hitting a hard and fast deadline for the final draft of my new book, Remixology: On Becoming A Postproduction Medium, a 250 page remix of this blog, to be published next year by an incredible press (more on this later).
