ARTIST TALK: Evan Roth
Carroll / Fletcher
Thursday 9 April 2015, 6.30 pm
Free, booking essential as places are limited
Artist Evan Roth will give a talk on his current solo show Voices over the Horizon at Carroll / Fletcher. Join us for a ceremonial cutting of the fibre-optic cable and take home a memento of the show.
Evan Roth (b. 1978, USA) is an artist whose practice visualises and archives culture through unintended uses of technologies. Creating prints, sculptures, videos and websites, his work explores the relationship between misuse and empowerment and the effect that philosophies from hacker communities can have when applied to digital and non-digital systems.
Roth's work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and has been exhibited at various institutions, including the Centre Pompidou, the Kunsthalle Wien, Tate and the front page of Youtube. He has received numerous awards, including the Golden Nica from Prix Ars Electronica, Rhizome/The New Museum commissions and the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award.
