For the final two weeks of his solo exhibition, Martos Gallery will present Arbeitsbeschaffungsmaßnahme, a work in which Justin Lieberman has assembled together 176 pieces of drawing, painting, and ephemera authored by a variety of sources, including artists AA Bronson, Kembra Pfahler, Bruce LaBruce, Kate Levant and Lieberman himself. Cut into 300 contiguous parts, the work currently lays stacked in a glass vitirine. The work's label-adhered to the side of the vtirine-acts as a documentary list and a key to the artists and materials incorporated in the piece.

Starting on Tuesday, April 1st, Arbeitsbeschaffungsmaßnahme will be on view in its entirety— hung up and reassembled back into a 10 by 16 foot picture, which exists simultaneously as a collage and a salon, a painting and a group show. Stenciled on the surface is the title of the piece, its literal English translation being "job creation scheme".

The exhibition will remain open with its concurrent group show, Poor Working Conditions, through Saturday, April 12th.

The major issues facing feminism and digital art go far beyond a numbers game. Seeking a male-female ratio in exhibitions is just one part of an overarching discussion that’s centered around how to present femininity within digital art and how to carve out a space online and IRL, in-print and on blogs, about feminism’s future. In an attempt to move the conversation off Facebook, I surveyed dozens of young artists, curators, and writers who’re actively engaged with the digital art world, and asked them about the major issues facing feminism in the digital art world today. From private Facebook groups to list-servs, there’s plenty of talk about feminism and digital art online, but you might not know about it; you’d have to be privy to these virtual salons.

Some of our favorite lady artists are going to be in a group show on September 12 at Martos gallery in Chelsea. The show, titled Lonely Girl, got its name from the YouTube web series LonelyGirl15, which trolled the entire internet in 2006 by presenting a scripted show disguised as a teenage girl's video diary. All of the girls in tonight's show incorporate the internet into their work in some way, and many of the artists themselves have the sort of gargantuan digital footprint that the NSA dreams about in their sloppiest of wet dreams. According to the press release, "The artists in this show represent an unprecedented moment in cultural history—where the artist themselves can be equally or sometimes more visible than their artworks themselves."

The show was organized by Asher Penn, the editor of Sex magazine, and features Al Baio, Petra Cortright, Maggie Lee, Greem Jellyfish, Bunny Rogers, Analisa Teachworth, and Amalia Ulman. You might recognize a couple of those names from this very website. Maggie Lee, for instance, has shot four magazine covers for us, which gives her the honor of Most VICE Covers Shot by a Single Photographer (probably…. we’ve never actually counted). And Petra is a crazy person who makes videos like this and was once the object of Teen Laqueefa’s lust. We asked Maggie to send us some photos of the show, but it seems they are doing this thing the old fashioned way and keeping all images of it off the internet, which seems a tad hypocrytical for a show that is at least partially inspired by the internet, but whatever. Just show up at 540 West 29 Street IRL on Thursday night anytime between 6:00 and 8:00 PM and have your brain scrambled.
