Viral Art: Disruptions in the spectacle from spray paint to Google Bombs

Thursday, April 10
6:00pm–8:00pm

RJ Rushmore will discuss some of the ideas from his new ebook, Viral Art, which examines the intersection of street art and the internet. He argues that street art has always been shaped by communication technologies, and the internet has been a major factor in the development of street art over the last decade. He will also discuss the idea of viral art, art that treats the internet like a public space and exists on the web much like street art does on the street, disrupting our everyday online existence by inserting art where it isn't expected or "doesn't belong."
