Googleheim

Curated by Horea Avram and showcasing the work of international artists,  Marco Cadioli, Stephane Degoutin & Marika Dermineur, Noah Pedrini, Jon Thomson & Alison Craighead, and Angie Waller, Googleheim takes Google and Guggenheim as reference points for two distinct but converging models of creativity and theoretical reflection.

Part web search engine, part modern art museum, Googleheim investigates the competing modes of visual cultural memory between models such as "Google Image Search" and traditional visual art institutions, such as the Guggenheim. The works in the exhibition each examine the massive proliferation of images, video, and information online and its effect on contemporary artistic practices. One as a post-postmodern worldview facilitator and a social catalyst, the other a modern system of artistic legitimation, cultural preservation, and selective promotion of values.
