msmachina: The incredible work of Sabrina Ratte
Today we kicked off a new Guest Curator program with Annie Werner of Tumblr. Annie has curated a permanent collection of existing AOL canvases, will lend a voice to the AOL Artists Tumblr, takeover the AOL Artists Twitter for a day, and more. The new Guest Curator program will rotate on a monthly basis, featuring leaders in art and technology.
Annie Werner runs the Arts Outreach program at Tumblr and Tumblr Open Arts. Her collection of AOL canvases will feature the work of a number of artists, including Mike Perry, Tomokazu Matsuyama, and Aakash Nihilani.
“We at Tumblr are committed to helping artists thrive online, and I’m excited to partner with AOL Artists, an incredible platform for just that,” says Annie Werner.
Yesterday was the last day to visit Carsten Holler: Experience at the New Museum. If you missed the chance to plummet down a slide into a room filled with strobes and neon sculptures then check out the video above! We can’t wait to see what the New Museum throws at us next.
In May 2011, AOL presented the Seven on Seven conference at the New Museum, organized by Rhizome. Seven artists and seven technologists spent the day prior to the conference at AOL’s New York office where they were given 24 hours to create something spectacular.
Writer and technologist, Andy Baio, collaborated with ground-breaking artist Michael Bell-Smith and created Supercut.org. Just recently, the site has transformed and expanded into a gigantic database of aggregated supercut videos from around the web. Check it out here!
