Critical Art Ensemble's exhibition
<http://cal.pnca.edu/e/636>/ opens March 13 at 5:00 pm, with a reception
in the Feldman Gallery & Project space at PNCA. At 6:30 pm, Critical Art
Ensemble (CAE) members Steve Kurtz, Steve Barnes, and Lucia Sommer will
give a presentation about their newest projects./Acceptable Losses/ is
an exhibition that examines which forms of human sacrifice are
acceptable within US society and which are not.
In /Keep Hope Alive/, CAE responds to the inequitable distribution of
resources with a block party acknowledging that while the majority of
wealth may be in the hands of the very few, the many have a handful of
remaining assets to give us pleasure, including *Sustenance* (soup
kitchen open all afternoon); *Delirium* (forty-ounce bottles of Miller
High Life for those of age, and Big Gulps of Mountain Dew for
under-agers); and *Hope* (raffle tickets offering big cash prizes, so
that for a lucky few, economic mobility will not only be downward.)
* $2,000 in cash prizes given away!
* (Special two-for-one ticket sale at the Brian Holmes presentation
on March 15.)
Critical Art Ensemble (CAE) is a collective of tactical media
practitioners of various specializations, including computer graphics,
wetware, video, photography, text art, book art, and performance. Formed
in 1987 in Tallahassee, Florida, CAE focuses on the exploration of the
intersections between art, critical theory, technology, and political
activism. CAE has authored six books on cultural production and
Brian Holmes was born in San Francisco in 1959 and lives in Chicago.
With Claire Pentecost and the 16 Beaver Group he co-organized the
Continental Drift seminars (2005--11). He is a member of the Compass
group, exploring the "Midwest Radical Cultural Corridor," and of the
Technopolitics group, with Armin Medosh and others. His recent books
include /Escape the Overcode/ (2009) and /Unleashing the Collective
Phantoms/ (2008). He also wrote the foreward for /Critical Art Ensemble:
Disturbances/ (LONDON, FOUR CORNERS BOOKS, 2012).
Critical Art Ensemble is presented with the sponsorship of The Andy
Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Portland's Regional Arts and
Culture Council, and the Oregon Cultural Trust.
