artist talk this saturday in amsterdam at W139

lecture rafael rozendaal

Saturday July 30, at 3 pm, I will do an artist talk/ lecture at W139. I will talk about my online works, translating/ optimizing web pieces for exhibition spaces, BYOB, web strategies, social networks, and I will close it all off with a new series called “Youtube Associations”. That means I play a Youtube on the projection screen, and everyone in the audience is invited to choose the next one, playing all kinds of videos for about an hour. I did it a few weeks ago at a talk in Chicago and I was amazed how much fun it was.

Hope to see you there!

W139, Warmoestraat 139, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
“The Shift” opens July 29, 9 pm.
Artist talk July 30, 3 pm.

Exactly one week from now, Friday July 29,
is the opening of my exhibition “The Shift” at W139 in Amsterdam, Warmoestraat 139.

I’m not going to tell you what I will show, it’s a surprise, but it’s a brand new installation and it’s different from what I’ve done so far. Hope to see you there!
