ARTIST WORKSHOP: THE REVOLTING MEME

 

21 September, 2019

Outer Space’s upstairs project room becomes a manufacturing lab for illuminated Meme creation. Become a revolutionary in creative resistance. Join this one day campaign, and liberate the Meme from its corrupted state as an infectious tool for spreading base humour and malicious politics, to its rightful position as a radical instrument for idealistic activism.

Bring a laptop, bring a tablet, bring a friend. There will also be non-digital media on hand if you prefer to get your hands dirty. This is art, so we can break the rules. Turn up any time between 10am - 2pm, and at the end of the day we’ll flood the digital arteries of social media with our creations. Let’s redeem the Meme and make the Internet great again! Bystanders welcome.

This is the first in a series of Outer Space events by artist Bianca Tainsh. Join the comradery as her meta-movement 'The League for Human Integrity' disentangles us from capitalistic ideologies by reconfiguring the tools already used to infiltrate and format our minds.
