Julia Christensen Discusses Her Creative Capital Project with LACMA
Julia Christensen discusses her Creative Capital Project, Upgrade Available. The forthcoming book and exhibition explores how “upgrade culture” fundamentally impacts our experience of time. Christensen’s artwork and writing examine how the perceived notion that one must constantly upgrade electronics and media impacts our sense of time on many levels—in our daily lives, over our lifetimes, as institutional time, and finally, in our perception of a space-time continuum.
The live event will include conversations between Christensen and selected artists, curators, and writers about her ongoing project. The conversation will be illustrated with images, videos, and writings from the project and book. Panelists include Aria Dean, editor and curator at Rhizome and Jessica Gambling, LACMA archivist.
