“什么是新媒体艺术?”- J + J 第一场对谈

J + J 对谈第一回 

有别于绘画、雕塑、甚至摄影、录像等艺术类型在观念和形式上的确凿,新媒体艺术在当代艺术中占据重要而又“模棱两可”的地位。国内目前普遍存在的类似于“什么是新媒体艺术?”,或“为什么是艺术?”这样的发问,便是其现状的反映。

有鉴于此,作为国内首家专注于新媒体艺术的非盈利机构,CAC 新时线媒体艺术中心精心策划了“邵志飞(Jeffrey Shaw)+ 胡介鸣(Jieming Hu)双个展”项目,计划于今年5月推出,展览以及相关活动将持续至年尾。两位艺术家在各自的国度均被视为新媒体艺术领域最为重要的代表性人物之一(Jeffrey出生在澳大利亚,过去40年间,于荷兰、德国、悉尼等地都有过重要的工作经历…),又同样身兼教职,为新媒体艺术教育规划未来。

本次“双个展”实则以此二人为中心,透过文献整理及数字再现、对谈、放映、表演…以及后续的出版等等这些由策展团队、研究员及其他受邀艺术家共同参与完成的大量工作,对二人过去数十年来的轨迹做一番梳理(和对照),并落实到对若干关键问题寻求解答,譬如:新媒体艺术从何而来?在欧、美、亚等不同地区的发展历程及其差异?未来趋势?目前国内在该领域的发展实况?

[J+J对谈]是邵志飞、胡介鸣两人之间的公开对谈,是本次“双个展”众多延伸单元之一,也是整个项目在历时十个月的前期筹备后,第一个正式对外的现场活动。第一回的话题设定为“新·媒体·艺术”,意在为整个项目展开一幅知识、信息与观念的坐标系。

Jeffrey Shaw and Jieming Hu  In Conversation, Part 1

Chronus Art Center(CAC) is inviting you to attend their first exclusive artist talk on the coming J+J joint solo show by Jeffrey Shaw and Jieming Hu, both of whom are eminent new media artists, as well as active scholars. The discussion will aim to provide the unique perspectives from artists on the understanding of keywords like “media”, “new media” and “new media art”.

Unlike the traditional art forms such as painting, sculpture, photography and moving image, which are uncontested both in their concepts and forms, the definition of the new media art in contemporary culture seems always problematic. The questions arose nowadays in China, such as “What is the new media art?” or “Why is it art?” are fair demonstrations of the situations.

The coming exhibition in May at CAC by Jeffrey Shaw and Jieming Hu is a response to this non-conventional art form emerged in contemporary period. Both of them could be seen as representative artists of their countries. Shaw was born in Australia, who had been actively engaged in various projects in the past forty years, in Netherlands, Germany and Australia. Both of them are professors, who are dedicated to the new media art education and help to define its future.

The coming joint solo show is served as a review to their works in the past decades, which will be juxtaposed to inspire more reflections. The spectators will be invited to revisit these art pieces through a large amount of digitized documents, including interviews, documentaries and performances etc., which were carefully selected and organized by the curatorial teams, researchers and artists.The exhibition is also set out to address the questions such as “When is the beginning of the new media art? What is the status of the new media art in different countries, eg. in China? Where is it going?” etc.

 Jeffrey Shaw and Jieming Hu In Conversation, is one of a series of public events for the coming exhibition. It is also the first open public event since the exhibition preparation started ten months ago.
