whitehotel: Thomas Zipp, SLEEP (is what you need) (2008)

Last Thursday night I went to GoMA - Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art - for an evening talk that was broadcast on Radio National and can be watched at the 21C Blog.

'21st Century: Art in the First Decade' is an exhibition, publication, blog and series of public programs at the Queensland Art Gallery l Gallery of Modern Art that explore the art of the past ten years. As an expanded platform for the exhibition, the '21st Century Blog' functions as a source book of reference material and contributions provided by artists, curators and writers.

The topic for the evening talk focused hugely on New Media and Social Media... even though it covered a range of topics for the future of this century. One of the speakers on the panel is also featured in the 21st Century exhibition... Tony Albert.

Some of the big issues and ideas that have defined the 21st century, from communication and design, to architecture, health and the environment, have been explored throughout the GoMA talks series during ‘21stCentury: Art in the First Decade’.
During the final evening of this GoMA talks series, guest panellists look to the future of the 21st century. What are the big forecasts for the 21st century? What are some of the problems we will encounter in the future, and what should we be doing now? Futurists, artists and authors explore ideas on what the future of the 21st century might hold for consumers and workers, media, technology, communication and art.

continued in Part 2!
