When We Were Kings
A solo SPEED SHOW of new and updated Internet based pieces by Evan Roth.
Curated and hosted by Aram Bartholl.

90 Bowery, New York, NY (map).
Description:
“When We Were Kings is a reference to an era that began with the wide-spread adoption of the Internet. It is the celebration of a time that is seemingly coming to close, when the architecture of the web treated everyday citizens the same as the kings. Intentionally scheduled back to back with an opening at the Museum of Modern Art (where Roth is showing two pieces), When We Were Kings is an experiment of Eric Raymond’s Cathedral and the Bazaar metaphor as applied to the public exhibition of art. When We Were Kings is the first solo exhibition by Evan Roth in the speed show format.”
