Dear Diary: Update All
December 15, 2013 - March 16, 2014
With the advent of social networking and mobile communications, the diary has evolved from private repository to a forum for public consideration and collaborative thought, where the personal becomes a platform for social interaction, reflection and activism. How do artists express individual and collective identity and the relationships among memory, document and fiction?
The exhibition Dear Diary: Update All presents work that uses online data, remembrance, handiwork, genetics, gaming and Google to mark the discord, beauty and banality of days.
Artists include Kannan Arunasalam, Chloë Bass, Branger_Briz, Victor Castro and Mark McKenna, Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen, Chris Collins, Eric Eberhardt, Zach Gage, Amanullah Mojadidi, Molleindustria, Óscar Muñoz, Laura Splan, Aalam Wassef, and YoHa with Matthew Fuller.
Dear Diary: Update All is curated by Jacqueline Shilkoff, Neuberger Museum Curator of New Media and Director of Digital Initiatives. Generous support for Dear Diary: Update All is provided by Marcy Kahn. Additional funding is provided by RBC Wealth Management and the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art.
