Well Now WTF?

April 4 @ 20:00 - 22:00 EDT

The Internet – Museums are closed. School is cancelled. The world is shut off and we’re stuck indoors. All the bread has been sold and Twitter has lost its mind. Fox News is killing off its own demographic. While everything is cancelled, why not have a show?

In spite of everything, Silicon Valet is pleased to present Well Now WTF?, an online exhibition curated by Faith Holland, Lorna Mills, and Wade Wallerstein featuring over 60 artists with moving image practices opening April 4, 2020 from 8 to 10 pm EST.

With everything going on, we ask ourselves: Well Now WTF? We have no answer, but we do know how to make GIFs. We can come together and use the creative tools at our disposal to build a space for release outside of anxiety-inducing news cycles and banal social media feeds.

As co-curator Lorna Mills suggests, “Why masturbate alone, when we can all be wankers together?”

Well Now WTF? is as much an art show as a community gathering. Beginning with the opening on April 4 and throughout the exhibition, we will hold online events on the site itself and via Twitch where people can gather and talk as they would normally for a physical exhibition.

The exhibition will also be accompanied by essays by Wade Wallerstein and Seth Watter.

Well Now WTF? will be available online at wellnowwtf.siliconvalet.org. Join us for the opening party on April 4 via Twitch & Discord.The exhibition will be free and open to the public, with a $5 suggested, pay-what-you-wish entry that gets redistributed to the artists contributing work.

Images from the exhibition are available here. Please credit artists listed in file names when using.
