The Art of the Eclipse revisits our live studio show from 2017 on Jolt Radio, in Miami. We begin with a conversation recorded in the abandoned Templehof airport in Berlin, a few years earlier. German artist Agnes Meyer Brandis describes her gravity experiments and explains how she raises moon geese. On air, our attention shifts back to Miami, a city in evacuation mode, just days before Hurricane Irma hits Florida. As we await the storm’s landfall, we remember communal experiences from the August 2017 solar eclipse, and introduce a set of cosmic science art films.
In The Art of Obsolete Media, four Miami-based artists represent a penchant for the pre-digital among creatives the world over. Their bygone tech-infused pursuits emphasize the ongoing relevance of obsolete media in the making and experience of contemporary art.
