About the event

For the opening of I Was Raised on the Internet, join artist Christopher Kulendran Thomas for a gallery demonstration and talk about his newly commissioned work, New Eelam, made in collaboration with creative director and curator Annika Kuhlmann. The work takes the form of a startup, a real estate technology company being developed collaboratively to provide a new form of flexible global housing—based on collective access rather than individual ownership. Kulendran Thomas discusses this art-led venture and his thoughts on the future of citizenship in an era of technologically accelerated geographic dislocation.

Check out other opening-week events, including Demo Day with Jeremy Bailey, curator tours, and Prime Time.
