Cloud Conversation 1: Exposure


Cloud Conversation 1: Exposure- A Transatlantic Live Feed Exhibition And Discussion

Cloud Conversation is a project that brings together the voices, thoughts, and artistic manifestations of artists, writers, and performers from around the world and is curated by Anne Murray. This event is part of the “3459” show, a collaboration between Relapse Collective and curator Emireth Herrera.

On August 10th at Flux Factory in NYC (4:15-5:15pm), and Tom’s Etching Studio in London (9:15-10:15pm), there will be a virtual dialogue with a live feed to each gallery between painter Joshua Dylan Rubin and writer Sylvia Arthur, which will explore what it means to be on the receiving end of concealed/revealed hate, while the curator, Anne Murray, will make commentary on the importance of artistic dialogue in the development of public awareness in relation to these themes and will moderate discussion. Exposure is an interrogation of the private and public selves, of what lies just beneath the surface and whatʼs hidden deep within from the perspectives of those who express their private thoughts in a public forum (Rubin) versus those who are impacted by those publicly expressed thoughts in a private way (Arthur).
