There’s been a variety of fun and whimsical art events lately, but every once in a while there’s a week of substantive works which we’ll be thinking back on for years to come. Performa is one of those, and the online biennial “The Wrong” might be another. And after 41 years, this Tuesday’s event at the Clocktower Gallery may be your last opportunity to visit before it’s turned into luxury condos.

What’s the hottest arts space in Bushwick? For my money, it’s Transfer, a gallery that focuses on artists who live in the digital world and make work in the physical. Since founding it six months ago, owners Kelani Nichole and Jereme Mongeon have launched shows that have included hundreds of gifs, large-scale digital prints, poetry readings, and wall-sized paintings of computer desktops. They have a show opening October 12 with Rollin Leonard, a figurative artist known for the digital disassemblage of his own body.

NADA New York
May 10th – May 12th, 2013
Pier 36, Basketball City. (299 South St. on the corner of South St. and Montgomery St.) Booth P10

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, 2013 - Art F City is pleased to announce the debut of AFC Selects, a limited-edition USB drive containing exclusive artworks by 11 internationally renowned artists: Anthony Antonellis, Jacob Ciocci, Paul B. Davis, Rollin Leonard, Sara Ludy, Lorna Mills, Shana Moulton, Jon Rafman, Rafael Rozendaal, Bunny Rogers, and Nicolas Sassoon. Each set of artworks is contained on a luxury Mobiado USB drive crafted from a single piece of sapphire crystal. AFC Selects will be available at the Art F City booth at NADA New York.

AFC Selects is generously endowed with enormous talents. Published in an edition of 100, AFC Selects contains original, commissioned artwork, including museum-quality videos and screensavers, large-scale GIFs, and custom software patches. From Sara Ludy’s 449 frame billowing cloud GIF, to Shana Moulton’s video documenting the bizarre effects of new age massage, the drive contains work that is extraordinary, beautiful, and just plain weird. It is nothing short of amazing.

Custom ribbons and packaging for the drive have been designed by artist Bunny Rogers, and each drive comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Art F City’s Paddy Johnson and all eleven artists. AFC Selects will be the first portfolio of its kind to take net art offline and put it where the collector can have it — inside a single piece of sapphire.

Proceeds from the sale will support Art F City. For information on how to view works or purchase a drive please contact rhett@artfcity.com.
