Alternator Gallery Exhibition: LIFE AFTER FACEB00K: KELOWNA, April 4 – May 17
Learn more : After Faceb00k Media Release
After Faceb00k: Kelowna is a localized exhibition presented by Montreal-based artists Serge-Olivier Rondeau and Charles-Antoine Blais Métivier. Beginning as a research project in the summer of 2012 at Centre Skol in Montreal, QC, After Faceb00k is an on-going archive of images taken from Facebook profiles. By accessing public user profiles and sorting through a fraction of the millions of images uploaded to Facebook every day, Rondeau and Métivier document and curate unifying themes of locations and their inhabitants.
In this way, Kelowna’s citizens supply the material for our own self-portrait while adding to a much larger bank of images collected from Facebook users worldwide. Printed as inkjet prints and categorized in large-scale wall installations, the images collected from Kelowna’s edition of After Faceb00k allow the public to take a critical look at online social platforms and their place in our lives.
Visit the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art between April 4 and May 17 to view the exhibition. Please join us for an opening reception and artist talk on Friday, April 4 at 7 pm. The event takes place at The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art and is free to the public.
