Max Eternity, Lecture and Presentation | Chandra Cerrito Contemporary – On Saturday, March 10th at 2pm, Max Eternity will give a talk at Chandra Cerrito Contemporary Gallery in Downtown Oakland, California. It’s a dialog entitled Art Theory 2012: Compression and Convergence in the Digital Age.
As one of the world’s foremost thinkers on digital and virtual art, Eternity will share core ideas about the overall effect of digital technology, specifically as it relates to art, civic life and the rapidly evolving social fabric and cultural landscape of the last decade.
For this event, which will include a reception beforehand and Q&A afterwards, Eternity will cite examples of visual artists and other creative individuals–working locally and throughout the world–who who have embraced the digital-age paradigm shift of weaving technology and the arts—reinventing the way artistic endeavors becomes manifest.
Eternity also will present his thoughts on the re-emergence of “total art” as a ubiquitous and forceless integration and gestation of creativity, a concept that was a century ago referred to as Gesamtkunstwerk.
