View of Unauthorized SFMOMA Show (May,2017)  


Unauthorized SFMOMA Show at the Radical Networks conference

FRIDAY, OCT 20 2017, 04:25 PM

Enar de Dios Rodríguez will give a talk at the Radical Networks conference about her project Unauthorized SFMOMA Show, which she produced in collaboration with artists Lasse Scherffig and Ana María Montenegro Jaramillo. A physical copy of the Unauthorized SFMOMA catalogue will be showcased at the Radical Networks’ exhibition.

Unauthorized SFMOMA Show was a series of solo shows that took place within SFMOMA from April 6th - July 2nd, 2017 through the website http://sfmoma.show. The exhibitions were accessible only if the visitor was physically present at SFMOMA’s public spaces via GPS verification. However, regardless of their location, anybody could submit their work to have an Unauthorized SFMOMA Show, uploading it (.jpg, .png or .gif) through the same website. All works were immediately accepted. Each exhibition started when a work was submitted and ended when a new work was submitted featuring more than 700 shows. The motivation behind the project was to materialize the failed SFMOMA’s mission statement of “making the art for our time a vital and meaningful part of public life”, and thus we created an open space at SFMOMA to exhibit and share any artwork with no entry fee or selection of any kind.

From mass surveillance to the over-commercialization of the Internet, the concept of a free and open Internet is being threatened by corporate interests and over-reaching governments. Radical Networks is a yearly conference for the critical discussion around these issues and a place to learn more about policy, DIY networking and how networks work. This event seeks to understand and subvert technology as a method of control, to teach people how to use networking technology for themselves and to encourage creative and social exploration with computer networks.



Vienna-based artist and curator Enar de Dios Rodríguez (born in Spain, 1986) graduated in Fine Arts at the San Francisco Art Institute after studying Photography at the Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien and Translation & Interpretation at the Universidade de Vigo (Spain). Her interdisciplinary work -including photography, video, websites, poetry, installations and drawings- has been exhibited at the Contemporary Jewish Museum (San Francisco), at the Künstlerhaus (Vienna), in the backpack of a friend, at the Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art (Gdańsk), on a 100x100’ wall in Oakland or in festivals like the L’OEil d’Oodaaq (Nantes, Saint-Malo) and the Ars Electronica (Linz). She has developed many curatorial projects, most of which took place online, that have showcased a wide variety of contemporary and conceptual art with the aim of giving culture the opportunity to occupy spaces outside the traditional white/black cubes’ walls. She’s the founder of the Bay Area Online Exhibitions Archive, initiated during her time as an intern at SFMOMA’s Media Arts curatorial department.
