Arcangel Surfware Pop-up and In Conversation event at New Museum

9 May 2019

Founded in 2014 by Cory Arcangel, Arcangel Surfware is a “multinational software & merchandise publisher” based in Brooklyn, NY, and Stavanger, Norway. Existing in parallel with Arcangel’s artistic practice, the brand – which produces wearables and publishes texts, software, and artists’ projects – posits retail as an alternative way to circulate art and engage with audiences.


New Museum and Rhizome will host Arcangel Surfware for a one-day event on Saturday 18th May as part of the exhibition “The Art Happens Here: Net Art’s Archival Poetics”. Previously based online, Arcangel Surfware is now only available at pop-up events such as this, and at its brick-and-mortar flagship in Stavanger, Norway. The pop-up installation at the New Museum will feature recent and classic products from Arcangel Surfware.

At 3 pm, Cory Arcangel will join Ed Halter, critic, curator, and recipient of the Thoma Foundation’s 2017 Arts Writing Award in Digital Art, for a conversation presented by Electronic Arts Intermix. The conversation will also accompany the live uploading of a TXT file containing a new essay on Arcangel’s work, produced with the support of the Thoma Foundation.

This program is free with paid Museum admission. Seating for the 3:00 pm talk is available on a first-come, first-served basis, as capacity allows.
