Exhibition: Fair Use – Information Piracy and Creative Commons in Contemporary Art and Design

Speaking of art works and law, Ben Tiven sent me this information on an interesting exhibition, Fair Use, that just opened at Columbia College Chicago’s Glass Curtain Gallery. According to the press release, the exhibition:

sets out to foster critical discussion about intellectual property rights. The exhibition looks at how contemporary artists and designers challenge proprietary cultural material through its appropriation, reconfiguration and redistribution. The exhibition is free and open to the public. The exhibition runs from March 1st through April 30th, 2010. More info on the exhibition can be found here.

The recent strategies of open-source and “copyleft” licensing serve to encourage collaboration and innovation through the free sharing of information. Together these two paradigms form a critique of the conventional modes of distribution and ownership to imagine a more fluid and inclusive economy of cultural meanings.
