On 20 - 22 May 2016**, Internet Yami-Ichi (Internet Black Market) will take place at Tate Modern as part of Offprint fair. It will showcase up to 20 local and international artists working mainly in digital and net based practices exploring the potential of online art IRL (In Real Life).
The Internet Yami-Ichi (Black Market**) is a weekend flea market which deals “Internet-ish” things, face-to-face, in actual space. Both flea markets and the Internet are fanatical and chaotic mixes of the amazing and useless.
Past vendor wares include rejected iOS apps, glitch, digital publishing, embroidered clothing, and the right to be hugged by an Internet idol. It’s up to you how to interpret “Internet-ish things.
The Internet Yami-Ichi is a celebration, where together we experience the afterglow, off line, as the “buzz” of the Internet wears off. After visiting Berlin, Brussels and Amsterdam, Linz, New York and more, Tate Modern in London is the pinnacle of all Yami-Ichi’s.
We are very excited and hope that you will join us in making this the best digital event of the year!
