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.

NARGIFSUS – No Fucks Given

NARGIFSUS, the closing eent for Carla Gannis’ second solo show, took plcae on 19th March at TRANSFER in New York. It featured works by 58 artists each responding to the them of selfies. As of 20th all of the gifs are now online 🙂 Below you can see my gif, No Fucks Given:


For NARGIFSUS artist Carla Gannis and curator Tina Sauerländer invited 50+ international artists to present animated GIF “Selfie-Self Portraits” that provide a broad range of artistic perspectives on contemporary selfie culture and self-display. This online exhibition (released March 20, 2016) follows the NARGIFSUS SCREENING at TRANSFER Gallery, Brooklyn, New York, on the occasion of the closing event of Carla Gannis’s solo show A Subject Self-Defined on March 19, 2016.

The Selfie Drawings by Carla Gannis, which are the prelude to the works in the show at TRANSFER, were part of the group show Porn to Pizza—Domestic Clichés curated by Tina Sauerländer at DAM Gallery in Berlin in 2015. The topic of the exhibition, the change of private and personal comfort zones in the Digital Age, complements Gannis’s The Selfie Drawings that deal with contemporary states of analog-virtual hybridity and identity performance.

NARGIFSUS, 19th March

Happy to be part of NARGIFSUS, which is part of the closing event at TRANSFER for Carla Gannis‘ second solo show, A SUBJECT SELF DEFINED.


NARGIFSUS takes place on the occasion of the closing of the solo exhibition ‘A Subject Self-Defined’ by Carla Gannis. The Selfie Drawings by the artist, which are the prelude to the works on view at TRANSFER Gallery, were part of the group show Porn to Pizza—Domestic Clichés curated by Tina Sauerländer at DAM Gallery in Berlin last year.

The topic of the show, the change of personal comfort zones in the Digital Age, complements The Selfie Drawings that deal with contemporary states of analog-virtual hybridity and identity performance.

Between 18:00-22:00 gifs and images from over 60 artists will be displayed at the gallery in Brooklyn, New York. I, of course, can’t be there (unless someone can lend give me £2000) but y’all should if you live there. The gifs will be online soon!
