Talk: Art Work and the Gig Economy

7 pm | Thu, May 25, 2017

Art + Technology Lab

Artist Michael Mandiberg and artist/researcher Lior Zalmanson will discuss the connection between digital arts and online labor including its recent manifestations: crowdsourcing and the gig economy. The conversation will explore how these contemporary phenomena inform artistic practices and create creative possibilities that challenge traditional concepts of authorship, ownership, collaboration as well as the ethics of artist-participant relationships.

Mandiberg is a recipient of a LACMA Art + Technology Lab grant; Michael Mandiberg: Workflow is currently on view at LACMA. Zalmanson is the founder of Print Screen Festival, Israel's digital culture festival, and a Fulbright Post-doctoral Researcher at New York University.
