A fairly apolitical experience at Bushwick Open Studios has us craving an engagement with the world beyond the studio. Luckily, this week’s art events will fill that void.

“Artists are the ones who are here to… explain what the technologists are doing, or at least contextualize, and make this [work] make sense,” exclaimed public intellectual and technology writer Douglas Rushkoff in his opening keynote on Saturday at Rhizome's Seven on Seven. Now in its third year, the art and technology conference pairs seven artists with seven technologists. They're given 24 hours to collaborate, and a lot of hyperbole to live up to.

It’s not too often I have a chance to post about my alma mater at Rutgers, but it’s always nice to be able to tout a moment when they make me proud. Mass Distractions & Cultural Decay at Mason Gross Galleries is one such instance. A politically-themed exhibition about how information is disseminated through artistic practice, the show looks back at one revolution’s children, and forward at another. How has television, magazines, and radio informed the art making practices of artists in second half of the twentieth century? How does the Internet, social media and other digital technologies informed the art practices of today?

Based on a combination of personal recommendations, and compelling images and press release, I’ll be trekking down to New Brunswick, New Jersey this weekend to find out. There’s not much time — the show closes October 22nd — and includes artists such as Clifford Owens, Marc Handelman, Martha Rosler and Ardele Lister. I recommend that anyone else who can do the same. Some images and press release excerpts after the jump.
