Organized by the artist and curator Lee Wells, DRIFT brings together a unique comparison of some of today’s most engaging top young contemporary video and Internet artists who all infuse their work with a strong socio-cultural critique. They focus on how communications and media technologies have opened a space for video and new media to speak openly to a spectacle of uncontrolled influences and the myriad of ideas that infiltrate our minds-eye in our ever-growing info-sphere. DRIFT, investigates video artists navigating the psychological liberation and isolation brought about through new global cultural and technological advancements in the 21st century.

The thirteen works selected for Drift together tell a story that is both fact and fiction, real and virtual. Not so much a theme show but a meta-narrative reflecting humanity’s essential nature in a time of incredible change. The works define a new mythology, beyond nostalgia and postmodern speculation. A document of everyday life very different from Vertov’s vision, yet so similar in structure and influence. Almost a century later, these artists, a new global avant-garde, bring us fragments of a 21st century epic, all of them, searching for a deeper truth in the maelstrom of the western spectacle.
