Voice of the Arcangel
Even if you don't know his name or you keep mixing him up with that lame glam-goth TV magician (uh, Criss Angel) or you don't know a hacked PlayStation from a hacksaw, believe us when we say: Cory Arcangel is an artist from the future.
Working out of Brooklyn, Arcangel first earned critical props for stuff like 2002's Super Mario Clouds, a modded Nintendo cartridge that played nothing but a constant stream of pixilated nebulousness. And ever since, he's made it his mission to subvert the basic functionalities of consumer technologies Photoshop, Dancing Stands, YouTube, etc. in the name of post-postmodern art.
This Saturday at 2 p.m., Arcangel will give an art talk at the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami as a sidebar to his solo show "The Sharper Image," running through May 9. Now, it won't be the apocalypse, but you will hear the voice of an Arcangel.
Sat., April 24, 2-4 p.m., 2010
