Micromedia like the GIF and Vine represent a radical and democratized form of modern art. They exist within the global social network of the Internet, spontaneously produced and shared to amuse, entertain and enlighten. Micromedia Fest features the work of 15 international artists, including three Athenians: Jason Coombs, Laura Maria Ramirez Giraldo and Michael Lauden. The short, looping videos, each from six–60 seconds in length, are varyingly funny, abstract and socially informative. The exhibition will be on view through Saturday’s closing reception, which will feature an experimental multimedia performance by local musicians Michael, Killick and friends.
