Famous New Media Artist Jeremy Bailey solves the problems you didn’t know you had!
UKS and PRAKSIS welcome you to a performative talk with self-proclaimed Famous New Media artist Jeremy Bailey. Get to know Bailey’s inventive and endearingly self-deflating practice, which collides the vulnerabilities and embarrassments of physical embodiment with the tricks of internet marketing and digital imaging’s sleek pictographics.
The event is part of ‘The Artist Entrepreneur’ residency developed by PRAKSIS with Bailey, UKS and The Moving Museum. Over a month, the residency group of international and local artists are probing the growing tendency within many arms of the ‘culture industry’ to require artists to adopt entrepreneurial approaches, with the elusive goal to develop new manifestos for artists in this era of increased uncertainty.
