REMIX: Making Art & Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy

LIVE from the NYPL and WIRED magazine kick off the Spring 2009 season with a discussion of the emerging remix culture. 

Shepard Fairey, contemporary artist, illustrator and graphic designer 
Steven Johnson, author of The Invention of Air 
Lawrence Lessig, founder of Creative Commons and author of Remix 

The New York Public Library, Humanities and Social Sciences Library 
Celeste Bartos Forum, Fifth Ave and 42nd St 

Thursday, February 26, 2009 , 7:00 p.m.

What is the future for art and ideas in an age when practically anything can be copied, pasted, downloaded, sampled, and re-imagined? This will be the topic of the evening as discussed by Lawrence Lessig, author of Remix, founder of Creative Commons, and one of the leading legal scholars on intellectual property issues in the Internet age; acclaimed street artist Shepard Fairey, whose iconic Obama “HOPE” poster was recently acquired by the National Portrait Gallery; and cultural historian Steven Johnson, whose new book, The Invention of Air, argues that remix culture has deep roots in the Enlightenment and among the American founding fathers.

Shepard x Appropriation x Supertouch

As some of you may have heard or read the criticism regarding Shepard and the accusations of plagiarism in his artwork.  Shepard has always been open to explaining his work and his processes but SuperTouch has just posted an editorial discussing the topic of appropriation in Shepard’s work.  Take a look at the feature and come to your conclusions.

SUPERTOUCH EDITORIAL:
“THE MEDIUM IS THE MESSAGE: SHEPARD FAIREY AND THE ART OF APPROPRIATION”

Adopt-a-Pet.com

Having recently created the ADOPT image for Adopt-a-Pet.com, I am heartened to see how many people care deeply for the plight of our fellow creatures.

I must have signed over 100 of the ADOPT stickers at the Manifest Hope show in DC. Pia Salk from Adopt-a-Pet.com was there sporting the ADOPT “T” and giving out the stickers. They were in such high demand that she actually ran out. So FYI, the stickers and other ADOPT stuff are available at: http://muttslikeme.adoptapet.com/get_image/

As for the limited edition ADOPT prints, here’s the skinny on those….

Prints will go on sale on Friday, February 6th at a random time at www.muttslikeme.com.
(Please note, they will NOT be purchasable though the ObeyGiant site.)

They will be limited to 1 per customer. I have signed and numbered each print (limited run of 400). Prints will cost $200 and all proceeds will go towards helping the millions of animals in shelters get seen and adopted. Who knows, maybe I’ll even throw a signed ADOPT sticker into one or two of the tubes when they are shipped…a la, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory…

I’m glad to see that the ADOPT image has rallied such strong support for these animals. Check out adoptable animals in your area and other ways to help at Adopt-a-Pet.com
