Posted on April 13, 2013

Prior to his program at ICI’s Curatorial Hub on April 11, Edgar Arceneaux posed the following questions to his Facebook friends, calling on their “collective hive mind”:

Tuesday, April 9:

Dear FB collective hive mind,

Is there a feedback loop between the content of our work and the means of distribution that one uses to market it?
Be it the gallery, store room floor or virtual space of the web. By what metrics would one gauge the health of this feedback loop?

Together, Let’s figure out the real questions affecting our practices in our 21c. Reality.
Please share your responses below!
