We Live in Public

August 5, 2011, 7:00-9:00PM

Henry Auditorium

The Henry Art Gallery is pleased to announce a screening of the documentary We Live in Public in conjunction with the ongoing exhibition, The Talent Show.

We Live in Public reveals the effect the web is having on our society, as seen through the eyes of “the greatest Internet pioneer you’ve never heard of”, artist, futurist and visionary Josh Harris. Award-winning director Ondi Timoner documented Harris’ tumultuous life for more than a decade to create a riveting, cautionary tale of what to expect as the virtual world inevitably takes hold in our lives.

Harris founded Pseudo.com , the first Internet television network during the infamous dot-com boom of the 1990s. He also curated and funded Quiet, a project developed in an underground bunker in NYC where over 100 people lived together on camera for 30 days. With Quiet, Harris proved how we willingly trade our privacy for the connection and recognition we all deeply desire.

This program will feature a special introduction from King of the Web CEO and online marketing pioneer, Maggie Boyer-Finch who will be discussing the launch and development of King of the Web, a site which is redefining what celebrity means in a digital world. Maggie will also share highlights of user behaviors as they compete to win the illustrious title.

A trailer for We Live in Public is available on YouTube.
