Passage Gallery: Expanding the Documentary

Opening reception tonight (10/14/11 from) 6pm to 8pm
Blurb from Expanding the Documentary website:
“Artists, in recent years, have pioneered forms of interactive, environmental, and database art that document socio-political, cultural, and natural phenomena that were once the purview of the film and video documentary. While film and video had the ability to collect, record, narrate, and argue about the historical world, expanded documentarians utilize the full palette of digital media in order to engage audiences, participants, and users in the production, archiving, and mapping of the real. Interactive and multimedia works implicate spectators in the production of information and arguments about the world, foregrounding the public nature of the construction of knowledge. For these reasons, we believe this conversation about Expanded Documentary is timely and important, featuring workshops that highlight the newest practices in documentary work.”
