Michael Velliquette has a show up at DCKT Contemporary!

His work is in the collections of the Museum of Wisconsin Art; the Racine Art Museum; the Progressive Corporation; Western Bridge, Seattle; The John Michael Kohler Art Center; The Linda Pace Foundation; The State of Wisconsin; Boston Children’s Hospital and the San Antonio Museum of Art. A catalog chronicling his work from the past 10 years titled “Michael Velliquette: Lairs of the Unconscious” was released in 2011 through Devibooks Publishers.
Then a conversation with Oliver Warden about his project Globall!
GLOBALL is a new take on a social network created as a work of art by artist Oliver Warden.
“Basically, I want to pass seven wooden balls, one for each letter in GLOBALL, hand to hand, person to person, around the world.
On each of these wooden balls will be the instructions of what to do with it in multiple languages (three different ones for each ball) and in pictograms. When you receive a GLOBALL:
1. Take a picture of yourself with it and send the picture, your first name, your location and the time to our website www.wheresgloball.com.
2. Once on the website you can fill out a profile. There you can share your experience, connect with other GLOBALLers and follow your ball on its journey.
3. You’ll then be asked to pass the GLOBALL to a VERY GOOD FRIEND and explain the instructions.
Hopefully as each ball travels, everyone will think about words such as ‘share’ and ‘friend’ and ‘follow’. With a little luck, each GLOBALL will go on a voyage of friendship and connectivity around the world.”
