UN/MUTE is an online residency that provides artists an opportunity for a critical exchange and collaboration while simultaneously connecting resources from the global cultural epicenter of New York City. The twelve-week program follows the narratives of ten European artists who have never visited New York City and ten NYC-based artists, randomly paired into teams of two: one European and the other, a New Yorker. Additionally, one artist in each team is a digital immigrant, born before 1986, and the other is a digital native, born into the world of web browsers and email, after 1986. Over a series of Zoom sessions, each team’s collective creative process unfolds in a series of video recordings. Follow the project on https://unmute.nyc
In this Artist Roundtable annd Sneak Peek artists share unforeseen challenges, wrestle with the tangible versus the digital, and discuss how they navigate collaborating with another artist who started off as a complete stranger.
Teams Ram, Stream, Branch, Cloud and Key share their focus of systemic oppression, polarities, prosthetics, domestic spaces, and invisibility.
