ArtTalk with Bonnie Stewart and Daniel Lynds - Gretzky Is Everywhere

August 29, 2017

(Charlottetown, P.E.I.) – The Confederation Centre Art Gallery invites you to a free presentation on September 1, 2017 at 7 p.m. with Bonnie Stewart and Daniel Lynds. They will explore the work of Andy Warhol in light of contemporary digital practice, and consider what art means in an age of fictionless sharing and the “experience economy.”


“This promises to be a new kind of art talk, featuring a conversation between a social media researcher/expert and a skyped-in artist, and a discussion about art that really comes from a fresh angle,” says Pan Wendt, Art Gallery Curator for Confederation Centre of the Arts.


Presented by P.E.I.-based Bonnie Stewart, Digital Identity Researcher and Daniel Lynds, Art Instructional Designer and Interdisciplinary Artist based in North Carolina, the event is timed to coincide with the exhibition Gretzky is Everywhere, that presents Warhol’s famous print at multiple sites simultaneously via livestream: in Charlottetown, at the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton, and at The Rooms in St. John’s. The presenters will take participants through an exploration of contemporary remix culture, memes, and up/down voting of content….via Andy Warhol.


Special thanks are extended to the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and the other partner institutions. Gretzky is Everywhere opened in Charlottetown on May 27 and will be on exhibition until September 24, 2017.
