Derider

Encounter pop-up musical performances throughout the galleries, each playing a mix of originals and guilty-pleasures. Snap a photo of your favorite portrait, share it using #artface, and stop by the #ARTFACE photo booth, where you’ll be transported into the artwork, and merge with the portrait. And, catch the Pittsburgh premiere of Lorna Mills’s Ways of Something, Parts 1–4, a film remix for the internet age featuring work by 125 digital artists. Mills was recently selected to showcase her artwork Mountain Time/Light across Times Square video displays every night in March for Midnight Moment.

#ARTFACE
by Claire Hentschker & Zach Rispoli
Update and remix old paintings by becoming them! Explore the museum and look for the #ARTFACE tag to select two paintings for a face and a background. At the #ARTFACE booth, be transported into your painting and become the face of art. You’ll walk away with a print of your new painting.

Ways of Something
Popcorn? Check. Drinks? Check. Sit back and take an epic trip through this remake of John Berger’s famous documentary Ways of Seeing (1972). These 1-minute videos created by 125 emerging and key figures in the Net.Art movement feature original animated GIFs, film remix, 3D animation, and web-based performances to describe how we look at art after the Internet. Director Lorna Mills & artist Angela Washko give a talk at the 9:30 Intermission.
