Irvine Contemporary Announces
Representation of Paul D. Miller (DJ Spooky)
New Edition of Miller’s video New York is Now (Venice Biennale 2007)
to premier at Scope Miami and the Rubell Family Collection in December
Irvine Contemporary is pleased to announce the representation of Paul D. Miller (DJ Spooky). Our first project is an artist’s edition of Miller’s video and music composition, New York is Now, which was selected for the African Pavilion at the 2007 Venice Biennale. A set of photographic prints from video stills will accompany the new edition of the video.
The new edition of New York is Now will premier in December 2007 in Miami during the ArtBasel/Miami week at the Scope Art Fair and a VIP screening at the Rubell Family Collection, which will feature a talk by the artist. A gallery exhibition is being planned at Irvine Contemporary for spring 2008.
Paul D. Miller's New York is Now
Originally created for the Luanda Triennial in 2006, Paul D. Miller’s video and music composition, New York is Now , is a response to the conditions that art reflects in the 21st century’s fast paced and completely networked global culture. Miller has long been at home on the global scene of digital culture—as an artist, musician, and writer—and his work has focused on urban culture as the globally interconnected platform for the production processes of digital media. Using archival footage and early avant-garde cinema mixed with his own music, Miller composes New York is Now as an exploration of memory through the interplay of images and sounds, creating a digital multimedia opera about a city made of improvisations, disjunctions, overlapping histories, and multiple rhythms.http://irvinecontemporary.com
