Afternet: New Works by Yuri Zupancic + Group Exhibition

  • Cider Gallery 810 Pennsylvania Street Lawrence, KS, 66044 United States (map)

Update installed. You are now ready for use. The world wide web is so now thoroughly integrated into everyday life that we hardly even notice it anymore. Like gravity or the cycles of the moon, it affects everything but is rarely questioned or acknowledged. Now we only mention it when disappears, leaving us desperately stranded without Google Maps, social media notifications, or streaming videos.

The art in this exhibition shines a surreal, critical and sometimes humorous light on life in the postinternet era, where we speak to our loved ones in GIFs, talk out loud to our ‘smart’ houses and cars, and fake news is weapon of war. Suddenly this all seems normal somehow... Sometimes it’s important to take a step back and reflect on the the weirdness that discreetly double-clicked its way into our hearts, minds, bodies, and societies.

Yuri Zupancic, longtime Lawrence resident now based in Paris, will come home to present a body of new works including his signature oil paintings on microchips, as well as sculptures, drawings, and video art. The other half of the gallery will be filled with relevant and thought-provoking works by artist friends.

Inside stage: Wade/Treaster Project with Jazz Cigarettes

Outside stage: Megan Luttrell, Lawrence singer songwriter, performs a mix of covers and originals
