The major issues facing feminism and digital art go far beyond a numbers game. Seeking a male-female ratio in exhibitions is just one part of an overarching discussion that’s centered around how to present femininity within digital art and how to carve out a space online and IRL, in-print and on blogs, about feminism’s future. In an attempt to move the conversation off Facebook, I surveyed dozens of young artists, curators, and writers who’re actively engaged with the digital art world, and asked them about the major issues facing feminism in the digital art world today.

NADA New York
May 10th – May 12th, 2013
Pier 36, Basketball City. (299 South St. on the corner of South St. and Montgomery St.) Booth P10

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, 2013 - Art F City is pleased to announce the debut of AFC Selects, a limited-edition USB drive containing exclusive artworks by 11 internationally renowned artists: Anthony Antonellis, Jacob Ciocci, Paul B. Davis, Rollin Leonard, Sara Ludy, Lorna Mills, Shana Moulton, Jon Rafman, Rafael Rozendaal, Bunny Rogers, and Nicolas Sassoon. Each set of artworks is contained on a luxury Mobiado USB drive crafted from a single piece of sapphire crystal. AFC Selects will be available at the Art F City booth at NADA New York.

AFC Selects is generously endowed with enormous talents. Published in an edition of 100, AFC Selects contains original, commissioned artwork, including museum-quality videos and screensavers, large-scale GIFs, and custom software patches. From Sara Ludy’s 449 frame billowing cloud GIF, to Shana Moulton’s video documenting the bizarre effects of new age massage, the drive contains work that is extraordinary, beautiful, and just plain weird. It is nothing short of amazing.

Custom ribbons and packaging for the drive have been designed by artist Bunny Rogers, and each drive comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Art F City’s Paddy Johnson and all eleven artists. AFC Selects will be the first portfolio of its kind to take net art offline and put it where the collector can have it — inside a single piece of sapphire.

Proceeds from the sale will support Art F City. For information on how to view works or purchase a drive please contact rhett@artfcity.com.
