Mark Amerika in Melbourne: remixthecontext

"Remixthecontext: the transmedia artist in network culture" is the title of my upcoming lecture [well, visiting artist presentation] that will take place on Tuesday at the State Library of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia.

From the press release:
The Centre for Creative Arts will hold a free public lecture by La Trobe University’s Principal Research Fellow in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and Professor of Art and Art History at the University of Colorado, Mark Amerika, Tuesday 15 November.

The lecture—Remixthecontext: the transmedia artist in network culture—will cover the potentials of remix practice as they relate to creative writing, audiovisual art, and social media activism.

"Remix artists, many of whom identify with the historical avant-garde, are expanding the forms of remix art to foreground an anti-authoritarian and interdisciplinary approach to both contemporary practice and theory," says Professor Amerika.
