»The Future of the Left«
Friday, 13 May 2016, 7:30pm

Seeking to extend the precedents set by galleries like cointemporary, left gallery is a blockchain-based space for the display and dissemination of downloadable objects.

This event marks the official launch of the gallery, which has been in operation since 2015. Harm van den Dorpel, the gallery’s co-founder, with Paloma Rodríguez Carrington, will be present for a discussion of the roots and aims of the project, which grew out of an experience he had producing the work »Event Listeners« (2015) for the Austrian Museum of Applied and Contemporary Arts (MAK). The creation of the work marked the first recorded occasion on which an artwork was purchased by a museum using the cryptocurrency Bitcoin.

The event will be accompanied by a meal prepared by van den Dorpel consisting of gado gado with marbled eggs – Indonesian specialties which became familiar to Europeans as the advance of Dutch colonialism subsumed the territory known today as Indonesia. The foregrounding of the dish’s colonial origins not only places an elided aspect of European history in the spotlight, but also seeks to explore the quasi colonial relations that are increasingly being built into the Internet’s infrastructure, a mentality left gallery seeks to confront and oppose.

In 2016 left gallery will present works by artists including:

Alexis Anais Avedisian (curated by Nora Khan)
Damon Zucconi
Dorine van Meel
Gene McHugh (collaboration with The Composing Rooms and Version House)
Harm van den Dorpel
Hayal Pozanti (curated by Laurel Schwulst)
Rita Vitorelli
Ryan Kuo (curated by Nora Khan)
Sean Lockwood (curated by Laurel Schwulst)
Shawné Michaelain Holloway (curated by Nora Khan)

»The Future of the Left« is the first of a series of events, exhibitions and presentations on digital art jointly organised by Spike & Yvonne Lambert, intended to address the display, distribution, and collection of digital objects.

»Already Unmade«*

On Sunday, April 24th choreographer Andros Zins-Browne will be practicing »Already Unmade«. Conceived as a rehearsal where Zins-Browne ›unmakes‹ – remixes, overlaps, compresses and extends – choreographies he has previously performed, »Already Unmade« reverses the order in which choreography is normally created. Beginning with finished, ›choreographic objects‹, »Already Unmade» will use the repetition and restaging of a rehearsal to allow these objects to unravel. Yvonne Lambert will be open to the public from 12-6pm.
