Closing Reception // Re-Screening: 5 years of TRANSFER

TRANSFER is pleased to present a closing reception screening event inside Lorna Mill’s ‘The Great Code’ to coincide with the gallery’s 5-Year Anniversary.

In 2013, Lorna Mills curated ‘Clusterfuck Zoo’, instigating a series of closing events curated by TRANSFER artists in response to their solo shows – all eight of the spontaneous series will be screened at the same time: Clusterfuck Zoo from Lorna Mills, Anatomize from Rollin Leonard, Net.\/\/orth from Daniel Temkin, Refraction from Giselle Zatonyl, GIFs to Have Sex By from Faith Holland, Le Petit Mort du Blingee from Lorna Mills, NarGIFsus from Carla Gannis, and Rule 35 from Faith Holland.

These eight series, including more than 100 animated GIFs, will be installed inside of ‘The Great Code’ on the closing evening of the gallery’s third solo exhibition from Lorna Mills.

The screening will be accompanied by ARPA-Cake by Sam Warga. It is inspired by the first modem of the internet, the Interface Message Processor. Consisting of funfetti mix, fondant, and hours of research, the artist’s cake experience will be shared with all attending.

‘The Great Code’ is an exhibition of animated gifs and prints suggesting the order of knowledge has been collapsed and compressed. The culminating work has evolved in Mills’ studio over the past 15 years.

GIFs to Have Sex By

Faith Holland‘s solo exhibition at TRANSFER, TECHNOPHILIA, has already received a lot of attention, partly due to it’s use of *ahem* male produce in the Ookie Canvas’ abstractions “composed of collaged cum shots which Holland collects from pornography and her own open call for submitted photographs”.


On 11th July the exhibition will conclude with GIFs to Have Sex By, which is a “visual mixtape brought to you by the naughty minds of more than 40 artists”. I’m really pleased to be one of those arists, joining the likes of Lorna Mills, Yoshi Sodeoka, Sam Rolfes, Alma Alloro Adam Ferriss and Andrew Benson. Full list of artists here.

If you happen to be in New York check out the event at TRANSFER from 19:00 EDT. If you’re not then there will a premier from Digital Sweat Gallery on July 12th.
