In collaboration with The Armory Show, AKTIONSART presents “Data Cowboy”, a film screening followed by a discussion with Eric Shiner, Milton Curator of Fine Art at the Warhol Museum, and wine reception. This selection of contemporary short films is placed within the broader context of the Western genre. Many early Western films focused on the cultural battles taking place in the American West between past ways of life and the technological and social changes of modernity. The artists presented expose similar cultural transformations in the landscape of traditional art marking through the use of moving image and digital media.
