Celebrating five years of thug life, pop culture, and R&D, the renegade art organization known as the Free Art & Technology Lab, or F.A.T. Lab, is going GOLD. F.A.T. GOLD, that is. From November 5–17 at Eyebeam Art & Technology Center in Chelsea, curator Lindsay Howard will present the acclaimed work of F.A.T. Lab. The exhibition invites the public to experience and engage with groundbreaking projects.
F.A.T. GOLD brings together an international group of twenty-five collaborators comprised of graffiti artists, hackers, and coders for a week-long residency at Eyebeam. The exhibition will feature significant works from 2007 to the present, including new projects launching on opening night. Showcasing a comprehensive and critical selection of the group’s diverse output, the exhibition includes film, software, net art, installation, and performance.F.A.T. Lab members will also be working and hacking on new cutting-edge projects to be added to the exhibition on the fly.
Get your bling ON and get ready to go GOLD with F.A.T!
