THE GAME OF THE INTERNATIONAL ART MARKET
and the launch of Playing SCHMOOZIO online
Superschmoozio, The Game of the International Art Market is an interactive online game. Played and/or simulated, live and/or archived. It replicates the aggressive drive of climbing the ranks of a career in high profile top dollar art from the perspective of the "professional artist". Superschmoozio is currently being workshoped via utilization of visual chatware. In collaboration with DesktopTheater this improvisational approach challenges concepts of hierarchy through the exploration of the myths surrounding "art", "advancement" and "success".
Jack Waters is one of the ten artists selected to participate in THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT 2000. The live art on the Internet series presented by FRANKLIN FURNACE, in collaboration with Parsons School of Design, Digital Design Department and the NetArt Initiative.
THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT 2000 is made possible by the faith and foresight of Jerome Foundation, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Inc., the Heathcote Art Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts' Technology Initiative, the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and The Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and Technology.
