Advertising. Instagram. That dude's tatoo. This gal's bike. The beer's label. We are overwelmed with imagery. What do we actually notice and what does that say about our own taste and the future of visual art? With both you and iPhones looking soooo good does visual art even matter anymore?
THURSDAY NOV 8th from 8-11pm we are going to celebrate and see the what YOU think is still worth looking at, what visual media YOU think retains value in our image saturated world.
How it works:
1. Buy a ticket and check out the facebook app: http://apps.facebook.com/aesthetic-darwinism/
2. The app will present two _g images. Select your favorite of the two. Again and again and again.
3. _g will select works to be displayed at the show in accordance to the wisedom of the crowd's taste as well as make an additonal selection of works based off the aesthetic preferences being conveyed via the Facebook App
3. Come to the Aesthetic Darwinism Celebration Party on Thursday November 8th (8-11pm) at 2050 Bryant street to learn how your aesthetic choices impacted the show's curation and compare to the average.
Bring friends. Have some drinks.
