Jamaica, Queens (March 24, 2005) JCAL features artists using digital technology in new media art. Works are categorized as animated, interactive and/or media or web-related. LivePictures: The Digital World Animates Contemporary Art is an examination of the impacts of multimedia/digital technology on creative artistic practice, curatorial presentation, and public reception. The exhibition explores the artwork that uses today's advanced technology in a sophisticated manner for interaction, animation, and automation. For example, an interactive animation that invites encounters to move and engage with the work; an ecological installation that incorporates surveillance technology, making viewers aware of their movement and surroundings; or sculptural work that employs automatic mechanisms such as robotics. Keywords like game, surveillance, simulation, and automation guide the selection of works for the exhibition. All ages are invited to "log on".

Participating artists include Shih-Chieh Huang, Eunjung Hwang, Ayran Kwang, Patricia McLaughlin, Marcin Ramocki, Daniel Rozin, Bill Viola, and Ricardo Miranda Zuniga.

Sunday April 10th at @ 9pm
Anthology Film Archives (32 2nd Ave at 2nd Street)
Curator Morty Diamond dazzles you with a cornucopia of queer and trans performance and multi-media mayhem titled Mix In Real Time. The show starts off with a puppet show between the legs of the fabulous performance artist Cuntessa. It's puppetry mixed with a little pussy power! Chelsea Starr, San Francisco's own storyteller with a rhinestone heart with a performance called Tickle Tickle Tickle that will make you scream with laughter and make you gag at the same time. Breathtakingly sexy performance artist Ben McCoy lap dances the audience in half with wit, stilettos, and a razor sharp tongue. Boston artist Peter Pizzi spins heartbreaking and hilarious narratives in photographic montage about blind love and hustler boyfriends. The evening continues with piercing performance art by Ray Aims and Crystal Goldmine, and Queer South Asian sex worker / performer, Ronica performs her piece Survival, a stand up comedy piece about sex work. Performer Heather Acs weaves self discovery, past lives and family history into a brilliant collage of words. The night ends with the ring master himself, the Prince in Pink, Morty Diamond with a piece about living through 2005 wearing only the color pink.

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!
