Book launch, discussion and Q&A with the artist Rhea Myers about her book Proof of Work: Blockchain Provocations 2011-2021.
One of the first artists to enter into creative, conceptual and speculative engagement with ‘the new internet’, Rhea Myers embarked on her first art projects focusing on blockchain technology in 2011 — only to find the world in uproar about NFTs, and her work on sale at Sotheby’s, a decade later! Proof of Work brings together Myers’s critical and fictional writings with annotated presentations of her works, which remodel the tropes of conceptual art and net art to explore the ways in which blockchain disrupts assumptions about property, value, authenticity, art, and the artist.
Myers will be joined for discussion by Urbanomic editors Robin Mackay and Amy Ireland.
