This week on Art Uncovered Italian curator Domenico Quaranta talks about his exhibition Collect the WWWorld: The Artist or Archivist. For Collect the World Domenico has assembled a group of artists who appropriate, re-mix, collect and manipulate the cultural material of the web in an attempt to hold up a mirror up to our always-connected information society. These artists try to figure out what to make of the deluge of data, videos, images, text, social networking, and e-commerce that have reshaped our lives. The question that emerges from this show is whether the flood of information actually leads to knowledge and meaning or confusion, anxiety and identity crisis. The answer I got from the videos, installations, objects and other works in the show was all of the above.

Last Sunday I spoke with curator Domenico Quaranta over Skype about Collect the World which is on view through November 4th at 319 Scholes in Brooklyn.
