The News - A live streaming art project by Vanilla Galleries
Live Week: 1 - 7 May
Private view: 3 May ~ 7 - 11pm featuring a live performace from John Walter.
Exhibition: 10 - 26 May
The News is an experimental visual arts project by Vanilla Galleries investigating the effects of 24-hour global news through live and responsive artworks, exhibited in an innovative way using the latest online communication technologies.
This project will take place at Two Queens arts venue in Leicester's Cultural Quarter, but will primarily exist through the online realms of global digital networks. Each participating artist will create improvised artworks for one 6-hour period in response to live online networks (such as Google News, Twitter, Blogs and BBC news).
The production of artwork will be presented on stage and streamed live to our website. Individual artworks will also be submitted onto various online social media forums as the show unfolds. This will take place during seven six-hour periods over the course of one week at different times of the day or night, and respond to events worldwide; integrating with the global online community.
The News was commissioned through a collaborative project between The BBC and The Arts Council titled ʻThe Spaceʼ. This project will include contributions from high-profile organisations such as the BFI, Tate Gallery, Serpentine Gallery and The Southbank Centre.
The live stream will be broadcast on http://www.thenews.vg/
